Arrangement

The material from the Scrapbooks has been arranged chronologically maintaining its original order, except for two Scrapbooks that appear at the end of the collection. These last two Scrapbooks were created by Motherwell himself and were maintained in their original physical format because the deterioration of the material was minimal and the careful composition of items on the page reflects Motherwell's interest in collage. Occasionally an article will appear within a Scrapbook that does not match the date range of that Scrapbook but in the interest of original order the documents have not been re-arranged.

Biographical Note

Robert Motherwell (1915 - 1991) Renowned as one of the founders of Abstract Expressionism, Motherwell was an artist of international stature. His career encompassed more than five decades, he received virtually every honor accorded to an artist, and his work has been the subject of countless museum exhibitions and publications. Born on January 24, 1915 in Aberdeen, Washington, Motherwell received a bachelor of arts degree in philosophy from Stanford University in 1937. He briefly pursued graduate studies in philosophy at Harvard before moving to Paris for a year. In 1939 he moved to New York City where he studied art history with Meyer Schapiro at Columbia University. In 1941, after a brief time in Mexico where he married his first wife Maria Emilia Ferreira y Moyers, Motherwell returned to New York and became acquainted with Pollock, Rothko, Baziotes, and de Kooning. In 1943, Motherwell, Baziotes, and Pollock were selected to exhibit at Peggy Guggenheim's Art of This Century Gallery, which was followed by a one-man exhibition of Motherwell's work in 1944. Motherwell moved to East Hampton in 1945 where he maintained his studio, and he exhibited exclusively at the Samuel Kootz gallery. In 1946, Motherwell was included in The Museum of Modern Art exhibition, Fourteen Americans [MoMA Exh. #329, September 10 - December 8, 1946], and in 1947 he began to work on his Elegy series, perhaps his most well known body of work. Motherwell divorced Maria Emilia Ferreira y Moyers in 1948, and in 1950 married Betty Little, with whom he had daughters Jannine (1953) and Lise (1955). In 1953 Motherwell expanded his studio to include a space in Provincetown, MA, where he had been summering since 1942. There he began to focus on printmaking and collage, media he had experimented with since the death of his father in 1943, and he eventually helped to found the Fine Arts Work Center, a foundation providing support for emerging artists. In 1958 he changed affiliation to the Sidney Janis Gallery and married Helen Frankenthaler, a fellow Abstract Expressionist artist,* and spent time in Spain and France. In the following years Motherwell continued to travel throughout Europe and to exhibit both in the States and abroad, and had his first major museum retrospective at The Museum of Modern Art in 1965, which subsequently traveled to major venues in Europe. In 1969 he moved to Greenwich, CT, and separated from Helen Frankenthaler. By 1972 he married his fourth wife, German-born photographer Renate Ponsold.** Motherwell's career continued to be actively innovative as he experimented with etching and aquatints and incorporated music and poetry into his work. He also continued to devote a significant portion of his time to teaching, writing, and editing publications. During the remaining decades of his life, Motherwell experienced great success, with many exhibitions devoted to his work and many honors celebrating his achievements. Motherwell died in July of 1991.

*Helen Frankenthaler (1928 - ) Helen Frankenthaler was born in New York, where she was taught by Rufino Tamayo and Hans Hoffman, and she also studied at the Art Student's League. She was acquainted with Willem de Kooning, David Smith, Jackson Pollock, and Lee Krasner. One of the few female Abstract Expressionist artists, Frankenthaler drew from Pollock's tradition of painting on unprimed surfaces in large scale. Frankenthaler married Motherwell in 1958, sharing a studio with him in Massachusetts and Connecticut where she painted and experimented with printmaking. They divorced in 1971.

**Renate Ponsold (1935 - ) Renate Ponsold and Motherwell were married in 1972 until Motherwell's death in 1991. German-born Ponsold is a noted photographer often specializing in black and white portraits. Her work appears in galleries and publications in the United States and Europe.


Scope and Content Note

The Robert Motherwell Scrapbooks consist of eight 5" document boxes, one 2.5" document box, and 2 20.5x16x3.5" boxes for a total of 4 linear feet. Containing material with inclusive dates of 1946 - 2000, the Scrapbooks document Motherwell's long artistic career. The majority of the Scrapbooks consist of exhibition invitations, brochures, catalogues, and reviews and articles by such noted art critics as John Canaday, Dore Ashton, Hilton Kramer, Peter Schjeldahl, John Russell, Clement Greenberg, Emily Genauer, and Grace Glueck. Motherwell's name is usually underlined or circled within these documents. There is an emphasis on Motherwell's transition from painting to collage-making, and other themes include Motherwell's interest in teaching and literature, his involvement with politics and activism, and his achievements and innovations as an artist.

Condition

The Robert Motherwell Scrapbooks were originally housed in twenty-two black binders and two bound Scrapbooks. The binders contained plastic sleeves backed by acidic black paper into which documents had been placed. Both the plastic and the black paper were hastening the deterioration of the documents, so for the purposes of preservation and accessibility the documents were removed from their original housing and placed in acid-free archival folders which were then housed in archival document boxes. The records are in good condition for the most part. Clippings have often been photocopied, in which case several versions of a single article can exist within the collection. Some clippings are glued to a backing of acidic black paper, and glue has started to show through. In a few places the original documents show signs of deterioration.

Series II: 1960-1967

Articles in this Scrapbook show the increase in the value of Motherwell's paintings, as well as a general growth in corporate backing of art, for example by the S.C. Johnson Corporation. A small number of clippings document the conflict with New York Times art critic John Canaday, who was dismissive of the Abstract Expressionists in general and of Motherwell in particular. Several clippings come from Motherwell's exhibitions in Italy, where his work circulated from 1962 - 63. Additionally, there are many reviews of the MoMA retrospective, Robert Motherwell [MoMA Exh. #776, October 1-November 28, 1965], which also traveled to the Whitechapel Gallery in London and the Stedelijk Museum in the Netherlands. For extensive clippings and reviews of the exhibition in Whitechapel, see Scrapbook XXIV. Much of the Scrapbook is devoted to the controversy over New England Elegy, Motherwell's mural in the John F. Kennedy Federal Building in Boston, erected August 7, 1966. It was thought by many to be an abstract rendering of the moment of Kennedy's assassination. The General Services Administration commissioned this piece for $25,000, and it and was one of the first instances of a federal agency commissioning work by an artist.

Series III: 1968-1971

This Scrapbook contains a few clippings of the memorial service held for René d'Harnoncourt, Director of The Museum of Modern Art from 1949 - 1968. There are also several articles reviewing Motherwell's 1968 exhibition of collages at The Whitney, his first exhibition of new work in six years. Many articles cover the protest against violence and repression during the National Democratic Convention in August of 1968. In response, a large group of artists (headed by Motherwell) first refused to exhibit art in Chicago for two years but decided instead to arrange a protest exhibition at the Richard Feigen Gallery in October, called the "Richard J. Daley" exhibition after the mayor of Chicago at the time. Richard Feigen and Claes Oldenburg organized the exhibition, and forty-seven artists, including Motherwell, displayed works. A few articles mention the growth of corporate backing in art, specifically by Xerox. There are also articles about the Art Worker's Coalition assertion that MoMA had been exercising a "subtle form of blackmail" by soliciting the donations of works from artists for the exhibition The New American Painting and Sculpture: The First Generation [MoMA Exh. #893, June 18-October 5, 1969]. There are many posters, flyers, and brochures from Provincetown, where Motherwell had taken up summer residence in 1953. There are also a few announcements for The Documents of Modern Art, edited by Robert Motherwell. Articles at the end of the Scrapbook focus on Motherwell's Paris exhibition, Rêve et Realité, in 1977.

Series IV: 1972

Many articles in this Scrapbook cover The Metropolitan Museum of Art's exhibition of Motherwell's A la Pintura, The Genesis of the Book, an unbound book that illustrated the poem A la Pintura by modern Spanish poet Rafael Alberti with twenty-one color aquatints. This was the largest print exhibition to date at The Metropolitan, and it marks Motherwell's movement away from "action" (in painting) to "contemplation" (in collages). There are also several articles on the death of Motherwell's mother, Margaret Rosener. There is one article on weaver Gloria Ross, Helen Frankenthaler's sister.

Series V: 1973 - 1974

This Scrapbook covers exhibitions at Princeton, and in Virginia, California, and Germany, as well as the MoMA exhibition, American Prints: 1913-1963 [MoMA Exh. #1082a, December 3, 1974-March 3, 1975]. There is an article noting Motherwell's incorporation of the music of the Boston Philharmonic and the poetry of Frank O'Hara into his artwork. Articles also discuss Motherwell's departure from the Marlborough Gallery. There are a number of articles on Motherwell's exhibition at the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., the National Gallery's first exhibition of modern art. Many articles show that Motherwell's interest in aquatint persisted, and discuss the establishment of an etching workshop in his home in Greenwich, Connecticut. Thematically, many clippings note that at this point Motherwell can be seen returning to compositional elements addressed in the Open series, as well as to the earlier palette of the Elegy series.

Series VI: 1975 - 1976

This Scrapbook contains several advertisements for Motherwell exhibitions in New York, as well as articles pointing to Motherwell's increasing concentration on prints and collages. There is also an extensive section of articles in German. Later German articles are accompanied by a translation, a service arranged by Andre Emmerich, a gallery owner in New York and Zurich.

There are also brochures for the original nine-color offset lithograph series, In Celebration, which was created by Motherwell to commemorate the completion of Stanford Law School buildings. Motherwell is referred to as a "star" or "superstar" in several articles. There are also articles on Motherwell's Düsseldorf retrospective in September 1976, which also traveled to Stockholm and Vienna.

Series VII: 1977 - 1979

This Scrapbook contains articles on Motherwell's protest of the French government's release of suspected Palestinian terrorist, Abu Daoud. In response, Motherwell refused to attend the opening of the Georges Pompidou Center. There are also several articles concentrating on the major Motherwell exhibition in Paris: Robert Motherwell: Choix de Peintures et Collages 1941 - 1977 at the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, from June 21 to September 20, 1977. The exhibition contained approximately 140 - 170 paintings, and Hilton Kramer wrote that it was "probably the largest one-man show any living American artist has ever been given in a French museum." [Hilton Kramer, "An American in Paris," The New York Times Magazine (June 19, 1977).] This Scrapbook contains many mentions of honors and awards garnered by Motherwell, including the "Artist of the Year" Award from the state of Connecticut and the Gold Medal of Honor from Philadelphia's Academy of Fine Arts, which was the first time the award had been given to non-figurative artist since award's inception in 1893. There are several articles on the H.H. Arnason monograph, Robert Motherwell, which was called "propagandistic" by many reviewers. This Scrapbook also contains advertisements for original postcards created by Motherwell for the Artist's Postcard exhibit in New York, and articles about his commission to paint the mural in I.M. Pei's new wing of the National Gallery in Washington D.C., which opened on June 1, 1978.

Series IX: 1983

This Scrapbook contains an Archives of American Art article on a 1950 letter from Alfred H. Barr, Jr., Director of The Museum of Modern Art, to Baldwin Smith, Chairman of the Department of Art and Archaeology at Princeton, on the subject of William Seitz's doctoral dissertation. Smith was concerned with Seitz's desire to write about the Abstract Expressionists, feeling that it was not sufficiently "historical," as it would cover only the previous twenty years. Barr assured Smith that it was a valid topic and urged him to allow Seitz to write the thesis. The Scrapbook also contains many articles on the Connecticut Painters 7+7+7 exhibition at the Wadsworth Atheneum where artists acted as curators. There are also many articles on the Second Annual Provincetown James Joyce Conference, with a complementary Motherwell tribute exhibition at Hawthorne Gallery. The large retrospective, Robert Motherwell, organized by Curator Douglas G. Schultz of the Albright-Knox Gallery in Buffalo, began in 1983 and eventually traveled to Los Angeles County Museum of Art (January 10 - March 4, 1984), San Francisco MoMA (April 12 - June 3, 1984), Seattle Art Museum (June 22 - August 5, 1984), and Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (December 7, 1984 - February 3, 1985). This Scrapbook contains clippings for only the Albright-Knox Gallery venue.

Series XII: 1985

This Scrapbook contains clippings on Robert Motherwell at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. There is also the transcript for Motherwell's commencement speech for Brown University, and articles on Motherwell's honorary degrees from The New School and Hunter College, as well as his Edward MacDowell Medal for outstanding lifetime achievement in art. Several articles concentrate on the vandalism of Dublin 1916 Black and Tan and the destruction of Frankenthaler's Capri in Albany. There are many articles on the demolition of Motherwell's 1946 East Hampton Quonset hut, designed by Pierre Chareau. A large portion of the Scrapbook is devoted to articles about Silvermine '85, a corporate collection of art shown at several local galleries in Connecticut. Articles also document Motherwell's involvement with the Association of Artists Against Apartheid exhibitions put on by United Nations in support of a free and democratic government in South Africa.

Series XVI: 1989

This Scrapbook contains an advertisement for the second edition of the Motherwell edited Dada Painters and Poets with a forward by Jack Flam. There are many articles on Motherwell's support for Andrés Serrano and Robert Mapplethorpe during the revocation of a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. In response to winning the National Medal of Arts, Motherwell offered to donate the $10,000 prize money to the AIDS arts exhibition Witnesses: Against Our Vanishing at Artists Space gallery to replace the revoked NEA grant. The NEA decision to withhold funding was later reversed. There is an article on Motherwell's exhibition of musical collages at the Montclair Museum based on Baudelaire's theory of correspondence between different levels of creativity. There are also clippings from Motherwell's first Italian retrospective since 1965, which was held at the Padiglione d'arte contemporanea in Milan and consisted of forty years worth of collages and paintings, including major pieces on loan from from MoMA.
