Robert Motherwell : what art holds by Mary Ann Caws( Book )
8 editions published in 1996 in 3 languages and held by 620 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

Robert Motherwell : collage by Mel Gooding( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 102 libraries worldwide
A number of Robert Motherwell's most important early works were collage-paintings, beginning with his first effort in the spring of 1943, "Pierrot's Hat," made while working alongside Jackson Pollock in the latter's studio. "I took to collage like a duck to water," Motherwell later reflected, and he continued to "play with papers" for the rest of his life, esteeming his skill in the medium as one of his "chief gifts." Collage also helped the artist reconcile his relationship to European modernism (particularly Surrealism) on the one hand, and American Abstract Expressionism on the other. Reproducing a concise selection of collages from throughout the artist's career in full color, this volume also includes a series of "case studies" on individual collages and broader essays by critic Mel Gooding that examine their composition, palette and literary allusions, and Motherwell's unique position bridging Surrealism and Abstract Expressionism.0Exhibition: Bernard Jacobson Gallery, NYC, US A (17.1.-26.2.2014)
