Famous quotes containing the words willem de kooning, willem de and/or kooning:

    If you pick up some paint with your brush and make somebody’s nose with it, this is rather ridiculous when you think of it, theoretically or philosophically. It’s really absurd to make an image, like a human image, with paint, today.
    Willem De Kooning (b. 1904)

    The attitude that nature is chaotic and that the artist puts order into it is a very absurd point of view, I think. All that we can hope for is to put some order into ourselves.
    Willem De Kooning (b. 1904)

    An artist is forced by others to paint out of his own free will.
    —Willem De Kooning (b. 1904)
