Excavation was done by William de Kooning in 1950 and he used oil on canvas. During this period, de Kooning was trying to understand his own personal synthesis of Cubism and Surrealism. Excavation emphasizes all the flatness, interpenetration, and firm infrastructure. This painting is an example of de Kooning's complex and dense style of art, with its many suggestions of both human anatomy with the life of the city.
