James Kalm has on occasions presented what he feels are "historical" exhibitions. But nothing could fit that category more precisely than "Willem de Kooming: a Retrospective at MoMA". Billed as the most complete survey of this heroic artist's career ever presented, this exhibition is a once in a lifetime chance to see its full breadth. Part three features the major shift to abstract landscape that took place from 1956-59 bringing with it grand coloristic brushwork, his departure to live fulltime in the Hamptons, and his concentration of female figures in the landscape. Organized by John Elderfield, Chief Curator Emeritus of Painting and Sculpture.
