Richard Prince’s 'de Kooning' series is a process of interaction and appropriation with the works of ground-breaking imagery of the Abstract Expressionist master, Willem de Kooning. The idea for these edgy, Oedipal works came to him when he was leafing through a catalogue of de Kooning’s 'Women' series. Prince started sketching over the paintings, and, as time went on, he began applying fragments cut and pasted from catalogues and vintage porn magazines. Male and female torsos, genitalia, thighs, and facial features, as well as drawing with graphite and oil crayon, added outlines, silhouettes and textures all were layered to the original figures, blurring the distinction between de Kooning’s imagery and Prince’s own.
