Architectural Digest Visits Willem de Kooning (1982)

Willem-de-kooning-portrait_lg

In the early 1960s Abstract Expressionist Willem de Kooning and his wife, Elaine, also an artist, decided to move to East Hampton, New York, where they had on occasion been weekend guests of Jackson Pollock. Near an unfinished painting in the studio, Elaine and Willem de Kooning relax in rocking chairs.

The unpretentious exterior of the studio/home blends effortlessly into the countryside.

Eames chairs provide seating in the living room, and pre-Columbian figures fill the shelves. The paper unicorn on the left is by Willem’s daughter, Lisa, an art student, as is the sculpture of a mother and child next to the large piece of rock crystal.

The easel on the left, holding a work in progress, is propped up by two oil cans, a “temporary” measure unchanged since 1963.
