Elaine de Kooning (March 12, 1918 – February 1, 1989) was an abstract expressionist, figurative expressionist painter in the post-World War II era and editorial associate for the Art News magazine. Born as Elaine Marie Fried in Brooklyn, New York, her artistic sensibility was encouraged by her mother, who took her to museums and taught her to draw what she saw. After graduating from the American Artists School in New York City, she held several teaching positions at universities across the country, and spent the 1963–64 year teaching at UC Davis. She was the wife of artist Willem de Kooning, who was a highly influential artist in the abstract expressionism movement.
