About this title


A noted art historian's critical study of almost every major work by Motherwell is enriched by the American painter's own commentaries and more than three hundred color and black-and-white reproductions.

From Library Journal:

In a meandering, allusive text, Caws (comparative literature, CUNY) combines anecdotes from Motherwell's life with a wide variety of literary and artistic references to locate his place in the art movements of this century. This discussion is interspersed with Caws's responses to specific works or series by Motherwell. A chronology of the artist's life, photographs of him in his last years, transcripts of several interviews with him, and a generous selection of reproductions of his paintings and collages complete the volume. Some readers will find Caws's idiosyncratic prose puzzling, though others may find it quite compatible with Motherwell's abstract expressionistic spirit. Suitable for informed lay readers as well as scholars, this work is best suited to academic and special libraries.?Kathryn Wekselman, Univ. of Cincinnati
