Summary
Elaine de Kooning (1918-1989) was a noted art critic and artist, and a prime mover in the New York art world. She was a vivacious social catalyst. Her sparkling wit enlivened meetings of the Club, nights at the Cedar Tavern, and chance conversations on the street. Her droll sense of humour, generosity of spirit, and freewheeling spending were as legendary as her ever-present cigarette
