The poet John Ashbery and the painter Elaine de Kooning were both members of a group of innovative New York artists that included Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, and de Kooning’s husband Willem. Like those of her contemporaries, de Kooning’s aesthetic interests had shifted from traditional representational styles toward the radically new artistic development of Abstract Expressionism. However, the human—and particularly the male—figure still intrigued her; during the 1970s she painted several portraits of friends, including this one of Ashbery.
