Self-Portrait, Elaine de Kooning, 1944 Born 1918, NYC, Died 1989, NYC "Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Elaine de Kooning became a noted Abstract Expressionist* painter who also pursued portrait painting in a semi-realist style. However, like so many women artists of that era who married artists, her career was sublimated to that of her famous husband, Willem de Kooning." - AskART
