Artist and Exhibit:

Robert Motherwell: Pure Painting (The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Fort Worth, TX).

About the Artist:

Of the core artists of Abstract Expressionism, perhaps none have been less visible in recent decades than
Robert Motherwell. His dedication to abstraction and his determination, in the monumental and extensive
series “Elegies to the Spanish Republic,” to evoke the emotional implications of political events seem
particularly relevant to the present moment. With crises from climate change and the invasion of Ukraine to
the ongoing tolls of racism and broken governance all but demanding a response from artists, the example of
a predecessor deeply pondering the creation of art amid such issues may be instructive, even inspiring.
