Catalogue Note

“The dramatic black line, so essential to the women of the late 1940s and 1950s, is gone; in its place glorious, luminous white infuses these paintings with a light-filled pastoral atmosphere.”
Diane Waldman quoted in Exh. Cat., New York, The Museum of Modern Art, de Kooning: A Retrospective, 1961, p. 352
