Description

Elaine de Kooning's striking oeuvre is often overshadowed by that of her husband, Willem de Kooning.  Exploring the tension between abstraction and figuration alongside the Abstract Expressionists, the bull referred to in the title of this painting can be found throughout her body of work.   Elaine de Kooning's work is held in the permanent collections of numerous museums, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
