The Writings of Robert Motherwell, Paperback / softback Book

The Writings of Robert Motherwell Paperback / softback

Edited by Dore Ashton, Joan Banach

Part of the Documents of Twentieth-Century Art series


Robert Motherwell (1915-1991), one of the leading American Abstract Expressionist painters, was also a theorist and exponent of the movement.

His writing articulated the intent of the New York school - Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Adolph Gottlieb, Franz Kline, Arshile Gorky, and others - during a period when their work was often reviled for its departure from traditional representation.

As founder of the "Documents of Modern Art" series (later renamed the "Documents of Twentieth-Century Art"), Motherwell gave modern artists a voice at a time when very few people understood their theories or work.

This authoritative new edition of the artist's writings about art includes public lectures, essays, and interviews.

Impeccably edited, with an informative introductory essay and rigorous annotation, it is illustrated with black-and-white images that elucidate Motherwell's writings.
