Clam Diggers

Willem de Kooning was born in April 24th, 1904 in Rotterdam and he died in March 19th, 1997. De Kooning painted many pictures of women and also he was regarded as a leading component of Abstract Expressionism.
I like this painting because of how the artist applied different colors on the women's body and how he painted the shapes of their body without a lot of details however, you still can identify the different parts of the body. I also like it because it is an abstract painting, but the images are pretty real. These women are clam digging, which is interesting but also a little dangerous if you don't know what you are doing.
