Robert Motherwell

The most acclaimed Robert Motherwell art piece, Elegy to the Spanish Republic, is a collection of over 140 paintings symbolizing the human suffering faced in the Spanish Civil War. Known for simplistic and mysterious use of bold black shapes on monochromatic canvas, Robert Motherwell’s pieces are impulsive expressions influenced by surrealism. Motherwell’s influence is tangible in the works of minimalist artists such as Teo Gonzalez and others.
