Verified Purchase
When I first got this book I was a little skeptical thinking an artist as gifted as de kooning couldnt be captured in a little book, particularly an artist in the abstract field. Glad to say I was wrong. The author accomplishes what she sets out to do:

- comprehensive overview of de kooning's life and works; - introducing non-lovers of abstract art (not me but friends) in a non-overbearing manner to the world of abstract art; - highlighting de kooning's major works.

Accomplishing the above in a small book the size of a cd that you can read in one airline flight is pretty impressive. Aftert reading it I felt I knew de kooning -- already one of my favorite artists -- even more than I did before and I will certainly get other books in this series on different artists.

Despite the fact I thought I didn't like de Kooning's work I bought this book because it was cheap and short and the writing seemed fresh, clear and to the point. This book has completely turned me around on de Kooning and has given me just enough info to get a handle on the artist without buying a $50 book. His life, influences, main bodies of work and techniques are all covered. Short, sweet and succinct!
