This catalogue was published in 2011 to accompany the first UK exhibition of drawings by Robert Motherwell. The exhibition commemorated the 20th anniversary of the artist’s death.
Over ninety works spanning most of Motherwell’s career is presented in the catalogue. This is a beautifully printed catalogue with scholarly insights provided by Sam Cornish. Cornish presented concise background information on Motherwell’s artistic history. He also discussed Motherwell’s interaction with surrealism, and the exploration of structure and space within his works. It is the only book dedicated to drawings and paintings on paper by Robert Motherwell.
