De Kooning was associated with the Abstract Expressionist movement through both her painted and written work of the 1950s. A writer and art critic, she was also well known as a portrait painter, contrasting with her abstract work. She created portraits of her husband, painter Willem de Kooning, and many male friends, including painter Fairfield Porter.
