Robert Motherwell: Works on Paper
Text by Sam Cornish.
Robert Motherwell (1915–91) was a major figure in the birth and development of Abstract Expressionism and the youngest member of the "New York School," a term he coined. His career spanned five decades during which time he created some of the most iconic images of the twentieth century. Robert Motherwell: Works on Paper was published to accompany an exhibition dedicated exclusively to the artist's works on paper. In his extensive essay, Sam Cornish discusses drawings from the Lyric Suite, a group of works from the Beside the Sea series and a selection of works based upon James Joyce's Ulysses. Further main themes in the artist's oeuvre are covered, from the 1940s to the 1980s, including Elegy and Je t'aime as well as automatism drawings and work from the Drunk with Turpentine, Gesture and Open series.
Robert Motherwell, "Beside the Sea No. 45", 1967, is reproduced from Robert Motherwell: Works on Paper.
