Editorial Reviews

This program, made shortly before Robert Motherwell's death in 1991, is an exploration of the Abstract Expressionist movement and a portrait of one of its last survivors. Having come to New York in the early 1940s, Motherwell found himself on the battleground of American art. He and a group of painters set out to change the face of American painting. The film charts this epic battle led by Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Franz Kline and Robert Motherwell, who endeavored to make American painting equal to painting elsewhere and, in the process, shifted the center of modern art from Paris to New York.

The film contains archive footage and photographs of the artists, of Greenwich Village where they lived, of the events which influenced their lives - World War II, the WPA, the Spanish Civil War. Also included are interviews with art critic Clement Greenberg, art historian William Rubin, sculptor and founder of The Eight Street Club, Philip Pavia, Surrealist Robert Matta, artist Larry Rivers, art historian and curator Henry Geldzahler, gallery owner Sidney Janis, and art historian Jack Flam.

Interwoven throughout the documentary is film of Motherwell painting in his Greenwich studio, creating a collage in Provincetown and preparing for a major retrospective of his work at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

This film bleeds the viewer into the very essence of an Abstract Expressionist's world. Robert Motherwell, a poetic artist, thinker and writer paints and describes the practice of art, a rare and crucial experience for those who are truly listening.

This is an interesting overview of Abstract Expressionism in America as well as an insightful glimpse into Motherwell's process. A worthwhile watch.

I have watched this DVD several times, add an insight in to Robert Motherwell I never would have gotten without having heard his own words.

I purchased this DVD already aware of who Motherwell was. Still a great film for any art film collection or artist.

The up-close interviews with Motherwell were VERY interesting. He being a part of the New York Abstract Expressionist school, but being outside of it as well, was an interesting dichotomy. I will watch this many times over, as I do with the other artists that have documentaries and movies about them from that school. I wish that someone would do a feature film about the NY School from this period and cover all of them. Pollock is one of my own influences as are Clyfford Still, Robert Motherwell, de Kooning (to a lesser extent) , Barrett Newman, and Mark Rothko.

Great film...if your reading this review your interested in him enough to warrant buying this movie , its great ... and it shows him in his studio in P-town which was fun to see .. Clement Greenberg could make or brake painters back then..very powerful person in regard to American Abstract Painting of the 50's though the 80's and up to his death in 94'....
If he liked you you became a millionaire in a matter of months... and if not , well you just kept painting anyway and said" WTF does he know anyway..."
