History Information

Willem De Kooning was born in Rotterdamn Netherlands. De Kooning's parents were divorced when he was about 5 years old. He was raised by his mother and step father. He moved to the USA as a stowaway in 1924. In 1938 he started painting male figures, he started to add lines and shapes to make his paintings and a lot of movement and had a lot of contrast.
I like this painting because it is different and unique. I like how he creates his images by making different lines and shapes to make the picture. I like the colors he doesn't have to bright of colors or to bold colors. I think that he has just the right amount of different colors in this painting. It has a lot of movement and contrast in this painting which makes it unique.
