    Willem de Kooning Signed Abstract Drawing Leads Upcoming Avenue Auctions Sale

    A significant abstract expressionist artist of the 20th century, Willem de Kooning dabbled around many jobs for years before becoming a full-time artist in 1937.  Heavily influenced by artists Pablo Picasso and Arshile Gorky, his artworks were a confluence of cubism, surrealism, and expressionism. Kooning’s untitled prominent graphite on paperwork is a key highlight of an upcoming auction by Avenue Auctions. The black-and-white drawing is a riot of whiplash strokes and smears. The abstract work depicts two voluptuous female figures with only a few body parts clearly delineated such as breasts and legs.  Another interesting lot is a colorful acrylic painting by artist Victoria Yin titled ‘Seed.’ The artwork depicts a beautiful female face with red lips in a green backdrop with shades of blue. Hailed as a child prodigy, Yin was born in Boston. She started exhibiting when she was eight years old. The available painting was rendered by Yin in 2011, when she was just 13. Her works have been showcased at Beck Center for the Arts, Akron Art Museum, World Art Museum in Beijing, and galleries across China and America.
