Studio Sundays: the Art Studio of Willem de Kooning


Photo of artist mixing painting in art studio
Every Sunday we give you a behind-the-scenes tour into the heart of creativity, the artist's studio. This week we visit the art studio of the famous artist Willem de Kooning, a famous abstract expressionist. This photo was taken in 1952. I love the focussed expression on the artist's face as he works through his creative decision-making. Is he choosing colours? Much of the paint seems to end up on the floor and the walls too. This photo captures a perfect studio moment as sunbeams play on the floor from a window just out of the shot.
