Robert Motherwell (1915-1991) was one of the great painters of abstract expressionism. He had his first solo exhibit in 1944 at Peggy Guggenheim’s Art of This Century gallery, and later held a professorship at the legendary Black Mountain College. Throughout his career he continued to produce prints and editions. His work is in the collections of major museums around the world including MoMA NY, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and The Whitney Museum of American Art, among many others. From 1958 to 1971 he was married to the great abstract painter Helen Frankenthaler (see our signed print by Frankenthaler on this website). He died in Provincetown, Massachusetts in 1991.
