Willem de Kooning’s signature is copied from an untitled oil (on tempera) painting (27.3 x 19.1 cm) and pasted in a vertical row of thirty copies, which is repeated five more times resulting in six rows of thirty signatures on the surface of “Untitled V” (1977). Furthermore, two rows out of the six vertical rows are copied, resized (to accommodate two rows), and rotated horizontally and placed above the six vertical roles of signatures. Lastly, two vertical rows of six signatures are placed at the top – the first row at the left of the two horizontal rows of six and the second at the right of the two horizontal rows of six.
