Framed Print Motherwell Catalonia
During the 1950s, Robert Motherwell painted his monumental series, Elegies to the Spanish Republic, of which this canvas is a fine example. The paintings in the series consist of gestural black ovoid and rectangular forms on white grounds. Motherwell had been outraged by the Spanish Civil War of the 1930s but was not interested in merely illustrating the war. Instead, he used black organic forms trapped between massive bars to create the feeling of containment and tragedy that pervaded the times.
