Description

This volume explores the parallel careers of two celebrated postwar painters: Willem de Kooning (1904?1997) and Zao Wou-Ki (1921?2013). Published in conjunction with Dominique Lévy?s exhibition pairing the artists' abstract landscapes, this wide-ranging catalog demonstrates that, although the two never met, de Kooning and Zao shared a model of color, composition and motif that remains relevant in the world of contemporary painting. With texts in English, Chinese and French, 'Willem de Kooning / Zao Wou-Ki' charts an East-West dialogue in the immediate aftermath of World War II, tracing the thread of nonfigurative abstraction in Chinese, European and American modernism.
