Artist: Robert Motherwell (after)
Robert Motherwell was the youngest of the New York School, an informal art collective in the 1950s and 60s whose members forwarded the expressionist and avant garde movements. Motherwell himself was a painter, a printmaker, and an editor, having studied both art and receiving a PhD in Philosophy from Harvard. He was a significant force behind the development of Abstract Expressionism by championing a painting style based on the idea of Automatism, where you do not strategize your art, rather you paint automatically and produce from an uncontrolled inspiration.
This poster is an advertisement for the exhibition of Motherwell's work held at the Albright-Knox Gallery in 1983. This poster is in very good condition, with some slight crinkling through out the poster.
