This catalogue accompanied the exhibition Willem de Kooning: Tracing the Figure, at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, February – April 2002.

Willem de Kooning: Tracing the Figure presents a comprehensive survey of de Kooning's drawings of the female form, from his 1938 surrealist-inspired portraits of Elaine de Kooning and Julie Brauner to his 1955 drawings when the figure dissipates into the landscape and abstraction. Together, more than 70 assembled works on paper show the artist's struggle to eliminate traditional barriers between drawing and painting.
