From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
The Police Gazette is a landscape painted on canvas using abstract elements, and colors such as yellow, green and red. It is a painting with simple geometric forms, creating a perfect contrast between the formal elements that compose the artwork. It was this painting that promoted Willem de Kooning amongst the most important abstract painters of the modern world.
