Artist Robert Motherwell is one of the most recognized of the American Abstract Expressionist painters. He moved to Greenwich Village in 1941, abandoning his academic studies to paint full time. Motherwell created his first collages at Jackson Pollock’s Studio in Greenwich Village and, along with Pollock and Baziotes was invited to exhibit at the Peggy Guggenheim “Art of This Century” gallery in New York City. In 1961 Robert Motherwell began making limited edition prints of his work. He was the only one of the original abstract expressionists to enthusiastically embrace printmaking.

Motherwell worked with numerous print workshops in the United States and Europe. These collaborations between the Motherwell and the printmakers were a source of great satisfaction to the artist. Robert Motherwell synthesized his unique abstract style, and the materials and technical characteristics of printmaking to create over 200 editions over the next 30 years. Robert Motherwell died on July 16, 1991.
