Dog at the Door

The American realist Fairfield Porter created his representational work, largely landscapes, during the height of Abstract Expressionism. Although he was never interested in the movement, he was very close friends with, and continually inspired by, Abstract Expressionist Willem de Kooning. Porter was a painter, a lithographer, a poet, and an art critic for publications such as Art News. He attended Harvard, then the Art Students League in New York, where he studied under Thomas Hart Benton.
