    Art Brokerage: Joop Sanders Dutch American Artist: b. 1921. Joop Sanders (born October 6, 1921) is a Dutch-American painter, educator, and founding member of the American Abstract Expressionist group. He is the youngest member of the first generation of the New York School. Sanders was born 1921 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and emigrated to the US in 1939. He studied in 1940 at the Art Students League of New York, in New York City, for six months with artist George Grosz. In 1940 Sanders met Willem de Kooning at a concert featuring the music of Virgil Thomson, Aaron Copland and William Schuman. Sanders, like de Kooning is Dutch. At the concert Sanders started talking to the woman sitting next to him. When he told her his name was Joop, she remarked, "Oh, is that Dutch? You have to meet my fiance who is also Dutch." The woman was Elaine de Kooning. And by the mid-1940s, Elaine de Kooning had painted a series of approximately a dozen portraits of Joop Sanders, which seem to express aloneness and androgyny. He studied in 1948 with Willem de Kooning. Sanders was a charter member of The Club, which was located at 39 East 8th Street.. The twenty original members of The Club were, Sanders, Landes Lewitin, Phillip Pavia, Willem de Kooning, Milton Resnick, Conrad Marca-Relli, Franz Kline, James Rosati, Ibram Lassaw, Al Copley, Ad Reinhardt, Giorgio Cavillon, John Roelants, Ludwig Sander, Emanuel Navaretta, Charles Egan, Jack Tworkov, Gus Falk, Ahron Ben-Shmuel, and Peter Grippe.
