Robert Motherwell : what art holds by Mary Ann Caws( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An eloquent personal exploration by a close friend, Robert Motherwell: What Art Holds is an essential addition to the literature on the artist and his work. Richly illustrated with pieces spanning his career - including twenty-one color platesthe book also includes never-before-published photographs of the artist himself. Mary Ann Caws discusses the artist's paintings, drawings, and collages in relation to the wide variety of American and European literature and philosophy Motherwell saw as central to his art. In a progression of critical meditations, Caws looks closely at series of his works, such as In Plato's Cave and Night Music, and at such great individual pieces as Gift, her inquiry gracefully encompassing the writings of Frost, Baudelaire, Mallarme, Kierkegaard, Stevens, and Garcia Lorca. Her reflections are grounded in an essential agreement with Motherwell that his work was a continuum: that his life and art were a matter of process, journey, and becoming, shaped by a willingness to experiment and to start over. Always returning to the uniquely American themes of openness and possibility in the artist's work, Caws explores Motherwell's use of series, his bold color combinations representing such complex issues as solitude and death, and the idea of giving and receiving seen in his technique of collage. The book concludes with five thoughtful interviews between Caws and Motherwell, published here for the first time, featuring discussions of the artist's relationship to surrealism, to Joseph Cornell, and to Mallarme. Infused with the special knowledge derived from a personal communion with Robert Motherwell's art, Mary Ann Caw's work will be an immeasurable source of discovery for lovers of both art and literature

The writings of Robert Motherwell by Robert Motherwell( Book )

11 editions published in 2007 in English and German and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Robert Motherwell : early collages by Robert Motherwell( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1944, Robert Motherwell described collage as "the greatest of our [art] discoveries" after a revelatory encounter with the technique. This volume accompanies an exhibition devoted exclusively to Motherwell's papiers colles and the related works on paper that were executed during his first decade of art making (1941-51), while at the same time it explores the origins of his unique style. By cutting, tearing, and layering pasted papers, Motherwell reflected the tumult and violence of the modern world, which established him as an essential and original voice in postwar American art. Throughout the 1940's, he produced both abstracted figural collages and pure abstract collages. By 1952, however, the Surrealist influence prevalent in these first works had given way to his distinctive, mature style that was firmly rooted in Abstract Expressionism. Motherwell's enthusiasm for and dedication to the collage medium for the remainder of his career sets him apart from other artists of his generation. Reproducing fifty-eight artworks, the catalogue's four essays investigate collage in the first half of the twentieth century; Motherwell's early career with patron Peggy Guggenheim; the artists underlying humanitarian themes during World War II; and his materials. Robert Motherwell: Early Collages offers a vital reassessment of Motherwell's work in the collage medium

Robert Motherwell : elegy to the Spanish Republic( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Motherwell (1915-91) came to abstraction not through painting, but through philosophy, poetry and art history. While studying at Stanford, he was introduced to modernism and symbolism; Mallarmé's dictum, 'To paint, not the thing, but the effect it provides', would prove essential in Motherwell's work. Elegy to the Spanish Republic is perhaps the most literal example of this influence. Begun in 1948, the series, comprising some 150 canvases, was the artist's 'funeral song for something once cared about' in abstract pictorial form. Exploring the inextricable links between poetry, politics, writing and painting revealed in the history of the series, this volume includes Harold Rosenberg's 'A Bird for Every Bird', Federico García Lorca's 'Llanto por Ignacio Sánchez Mejías', notes and writings by Motherwell on the Spanish Civil War, scholarly essays and rare archival material
