DescriptionThe piece depicts a figure, identified as male, holding a small baby figure, enclosed in a womb- or cave-like area. De Kooning's drawings of this period hover between figuration and abstraction. Whole or fragments of human forms are recognizable, and invite a poetic or dramatic interpretation.
