Elaine De Kooning

Sunday Afternoon (1957)

This oil on masonite is meant to be a depiction of a bullfight in Mexico. On a trip there she was captivated by the movements. I love the way that the bull looks like it's standing still and everything around him is moving. The red of the cape and the heat from the ground. Possibly blood from the bull itself.
