More Description

In the history of art, only a handful of great artists have been able to articulate the nature of the creative process. Robert Motherwell was one such artist. Not only a seminal painter in the movement eventually referred to as abstract expressionism, he was also a primary theorist and spokesperson for the avant-garde art that developed mainly in New York City during the Second World War. Throughout the formative years of abstract expressionism, Motherwell's presence as artist, editor of a series of pioneering books on modern art, lecturer, and teacher was influential in both illuminating and shaping the development of what he termed "The Enterprise" of abstract art. Bringing together a representative selection of Motherwell's writing about art, dating from 1941 to 1988, The Collective Writings of Robert Motherwell offers more than sixteen essays, a number of pieces from exhibition catalogs, over a dozen public lectures, and all the artist's vanguard editorial work. Definitive and illuminating, this collection of nearly eighty pieces brings to light the prominence of Motherwell, whom The New York Times memorialized as the "eloquent and articulate champion of the entire Abstract Expressionist movement."
