From 4 October Skarstedt presents Willem de Kooning: Late Paintings. Coinciding with Frieze Masters, the exhibition will include exceptional paintings created in the 1980s, during the last decade of Kooning's 60 years career.


This will be the first opportunity to see this body of work in the UK since the solo exhibition at the Tate Gallery in 1995, which included paintings from 1938 to 1986.

Characterised by their luminosity and the fluidity of their arcing lines, the bright and often translucent colours of the works from the 1980s mark a radical departure from the dense painterliness of earlier periods. Demonstrating de Kooning’s capacity for renewal, this final chapter in his long artistic career was one of his most productive and as the works themselves reveal, one of his most accomplished.
