William De Kooning

William De Kooning is an Abstract Expressionist. I am looking at his work because of his use of mark making. He used harsh, heavy marks of paint and the image of the human figure to express his inner emotions. I am trying to understand the use of mark making to show an emotion internally onto a canvas. His expressive use of marks you can see an anger in the brush strokes seeing part of the artist inside his artwork.
