"Two Women lll " By Willem De Kooning
This piece of art was done by Willem De Kooning in 1952. He called this piece, "Two Women lll " He created it using pastel, charcoal, and graphite pencils on paper. Kooning's artwork is now found in the Allen Memorial Art Museum, Oberlin College, Ohio. I chose this piece because in our last class, we began to see artist's work and deciding if they were symmetrical, asymmetrical or radial, in which this piece portrays. Kooning's "Two Women lll "is found to be symmetrical. I first found this piece in our book but once i looked it up online i found it in color which i thought it was fairly more interesting to see the use of color to these women as well. I like how he drew two women, one on each side of the page to portray his use of balance. The woman on the left allows us to see more of her face figure where compared to the woman on the right, you seem to see more of her body figure, since her face is partially covered by her arm. I think this artist did a great job on depicting 2 women, having different views which gives you a thought to think if it was really two seperate women, or if it was the same woman portraying different poses.
