The painting featured on the poster is De Kooning's 1966 23.5" x 30" oil on canvas painting "Figure in Marsh Landscape". This painting is part of Moderna Museet's permanent collection purchased in 1982. The museum also saved a copy of this poster and maintains it within their permanent collection of original exhibition posters: Reference No. NMAFF 36/1983. Sheet size: 39.5" x 27.5". In excellent condition. Rare. Willem de Kooning was a Dutch-born American painter who was one of the leading proponents of abstract expressionism. Born in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, in 1904, Willem de Kooning stowed away to the U.S. in 1926 and settled in New York City. While working in the commercial realm, de Kooning also was developing his artistic style, exploring both figure painting and more abstract subjects through the 1930s. By the 1940s, those two main tendencies seemed to fuse perfectly, notably in Pink Angels. De Kooning became known for his depiction of women, and women would dominate his paintings for decades. Later in life, de Kooning explored landscapes and even sculpture, before Alzheimer's disease made it impossible to continue on. He died in 1997 at age 92.
