Denise Lassaw speaks well for them. I do not try to paint like deKooning, but in whatever style I may be working, his strong influence finds it's way. Respectfully, Michael Bierman

I totally agree with you Denise. Willem came from the same country I came from. I never was fortunate enough to have met either Willem or Elaine I do however have paintings of both these great people .So they are part of my life





Elaine de Kooning
Denise Elaine Lassaw (06/02/2003)
Elaine and Bill de Kooning In the Ask Art bio on Bill, it says " ...Elaine De Kooning....promotion of him through writing, lectures, and socializing is thought to be a key factor in his success." On Elaine de Kooning- my godmother. I know people always write that Elaine had affairs to help Bill's career but that was not true. She slept with men because she had true Joie de vie. She lived very fully and at times dangerously and she did it with enthusiam and style. Bill was a great artist in his own right and didn't need a wife to prostitute herself for his benefit. Elaine was a truely independent women, a thinker, a challenger of all bondaries, even marriage, and she had a big heart, supporting both individuals and causes that caught her attention. Her biggest weakness was ciggarettes- she just couldn't believe that they would kill her. If she were alive now she would be as active as ever in her work and as vocal as ever in her opinions on art, politics and the world. I still feel a great loss for her early death.
