Robert Motherwell

26 January - 29 April 2017

The exhibition opening the new year at Galleria d'Arte Maggiore g.a.m. offers the rare opportunity in Italy to admire the work of Robert Motherwell, a cultured and refined artist who gave one of the most original interpretations of the great season of the American Abstract Expressionism. Following the preview during Arte Fiera, the exhibition - curated by Alessia Calarota - officially opens on February 4th with a selection of works that shows the rich cultural heritage left by the artist to the following generations. After the cubist and the surrealist experiences, Motherwell turned to a gestural painting, however, his interest for abstraction and the formal elements doesn't prevent him from including personal, political and literary issues to «express what happens inside human beings», in a mental and physical union with the paintings themselves.
