de Kooning: A Retrospective, September 18, 2011–January 9, 2012

Do not miss  the first major museum exhibition devoted to the full scope of the career of Willem de Kooning, widely considered to be among the most important and prolific artists of the 20th century. The exhibition, which will only be seen at MoMA, presents an unparalleled opportunity to study the artist’s development over nearly seven decades.  Representing nearly every type of work de Kooning made, in both technique and subject matter, this retrospective includes paintings, sculptures, drawings, and prints.  MoMA.com has a brilliantly organized introduction to the exhibit, organized by themes, timelines and periods.  To become a member of MoMA and take advantage of early view hours and other exclusive events, click on the box below.

This exhibition is made possible through the generous support of Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis.

This is a chance to show off your new tie collared blouse in a fabulous abstract patterns, one of the fall fashion trends.  These blouses are so easy to wear.  By day with a pair of skinny jeans and by night with black pants and platform pumps that pop a color trend this season.
