Robert Motherwell (1915–1991) was an American abstract expressionist painter, printmaker, and editor of The Dada Painters and Poets: an Anthology.

He was one of the youngest of the New York School, which also included Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, and Mark Rothko. Trained in philosophy, Motherwell then became an artist regarded as among the most articulate spokesmen and the founders of the abstract expressionist painters.[2] He was known for his series of abstract paintings and prints which touched on political, philosophical and literary themes, such as the Elegies to the Spanish Republic..
