The weekend can’t come fast enough… TGIF!

In the mid-1970s, Peter Saul painted a number of responses to Willem de Kooning’s famous works, including Woman and Bicycle (1952–53). Saul spoofed de Kooning’s contorted female figure with distortions of his own, rendering the face as a grotesque cartoon and crowding the composition with Day-Glo forms that both draw upon and poke fun at Surrealism and Pop. At once homage and attack, Saul’s painting challenges art history while at the same time claiming his place within it.
