Dimensions: 21.7 cm x 14 cm.As a graduate student in harvard, motherwell met writers who led him to pursue the expression of individuality through the action of gesture painting. In the early 1940s, motherwell studied the history of art in columbia under the direction of the famous scholar and critic Meyer Shapiro, who later introduced motherwell into the world of art. Stimulated by this journey, motherwell began to create several first works that allude to the gestureal quality of his mature work. In the 1950s, his work became more abstract, leading to the production of his most famous and deeply influential series, elegy to the Spanish republic. He is best known for his mature work, recognizable by his graphic composition of saturated and expressive brush strokes.
In addition to his contributions to painting, motherwell taught at the black mountain college in northern carolin and at the hunter college in new york, and was the editor of several books that influenced the history of art.
