Published on the occasion of an exhibition of work by American artist Robert Motherwell (1915-1991), this catalogue illustrates the evolution of collage during his lifetime. The show comprises a selection of 26 artworks on paper, which the artist created between 1960 and 1989. This work is marked by the coexistence of different media and techniques, and characterised by his intuitive tearing methods, similar to the brushstrokes of abstract expressionist paintings. Motherwell's collages combine package labels, torn paper, cardboard, and other materials, revealing how he viewed the pictorial surface as a testing ground to create sensations with no prior point of reference.
