Robert Motherwell - Untitled (Ochre with Black Line), 1972-73/1974


Robert Motherwell — a writer, editor, and professor — was the youngest of the protagonists in the epic tale of the Abstract Expressionist movement in New York in the 1940s and 1950s, yet he would become one of its most eloquent theoreticians and create one of its most indelible archetypal compositions with his deeply moving and free-spirited Open series. Untitled (Ochre with Black Line) is a tour de force from this epic sequence. With many Opens in public collections, the offering of Untitled (Ochre with Black Line) is a special event.
