Elaine de Kooning: Quintessential New Yorker & Art World Catalyst

Cathy Curtis, author of A Generous Vision: The Creative Life of Elaine de Kooning, will share her expertise in this half-hour illustrated talk focusing on the New York years of the wife of artist Willem de Kooning, followed by a discussion and refreshments. Elaine de Kooning was a noted painter and art critic in her own right and a vivacious hostess whose wide range of friends flocked to her loft parties. Several pieces of Elaine’s original work will be on display and Cathy’s book will be available for sale and signing.
