Willem de Kooning

de Kooning in East Hampton, from the Estate of Dr. Alan York, Willem de Kooning's eye doctor, 1978

Limited Edition offset lithograph poster. Hand signed by Willem de Kooning recto
33 × 22 inches
 
Rarely does one find an authentic offset lithograph  hand signed by Willem de Kooning in his inimitable hand, with such superb provenance. This work was acquired from the Estate of Dr. Alan York of East Hampton, de Kooning's longtime optometrist and close personal friend, who died in 2014. In a tribute to Dr. York, the East Hampton star writes, "He counted among his patients the artist Willem de Kooning, with whom he spent hours discussing the old masters while watching him paint. Understanding how de Kooning painted helped him make glasses suitable for both his close-up and faraway work..." This offset lithograph poster was published on occasion of de Kooning's exhibition in East Hampton, New York, sponsored by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York. (publisher). A real collectors item - not too many of these out there.
