Robert Motherwell American, 1915-1991

Overview

Robert Motherwell (1915-1991) was the youngest member of the heroic generation of post-war Abstract Expressionists who revolutionized painting and shifted the art world's attention from Paris to New York. He is also the only one of the group (which included Jackson Pollock, Hans Hoffman, and Willem DeKooning) for whom printmaking became a major preoccupation. Motherwell's work as a printmaker as well as a painter distinguished him, both for his innovations in graphic media and for his stunning images.
