ELEGY TO THE SPANISH REPUBLIC #122
© Licensed by VAGA, New York, NY See Details
American painter, Robert Motherwell, was one of the founders and principal exponents of Abstract Expressionism*, who was among the first American artists to cultivate accidental elements in his work.  A precocious youth, Motherwell received a scholarship to study art when he was 11 years old.  He preferred academic studies, however, and eventually took degrees in aesthetics from Stanford and Harvard universities.

Motherwell decided to become a serious artist only in 1941. (showing 500 of 38801 characters).
