Robert Motherwell

New York Art World ®  - Commentary Index - Artists Listings - Themes

Robert Motherwell viewed literature and philosophy as integral components of his art.

He is best known for the "Elegy to the Spanish Republic" series, an ambitious group of somber abstract paintings. Elegy to the Spanish Republic No. 34 (1953 - 1954) features black bars and ovals and vertical white stripes that partly obscure colors that refer to the flag of  the Spanish Republic.

1915 - 1991
