Burgi, Bernhard Mendes, Klaus Kertess and Ralph Ubi. WILLEM DE KOONING: Paintings 1960-1980. Includes text by Harold Rosenberg and biographical notes by Roland Wetzel; 204 pp., 56 color and 9 b&w illustrations. 4to, boards. Ostfildern-Ruit, Hatje Cantz Publishers, 2005.
This monograph concentrates on a sometimes overlooked phase of De Kooning's career, two decades where he worked on Long Island and, in response to his bucolic surroundings, developed a gesturalism that is grander and less frenetic than in the early work even as it retains its essential vigor. The book accompanies an exhibition at the Basel Kunstmuseum. Text in English and German.
