Motherwell, Robert [Modern Artists In America]. Signed Book ("Robert Motherwell"). New York: Wittenborn Schultz, Inc., 1951, 198 pages, 7¾ x 10¾". Motherwell signs in blue ink on the title page. Some chipping along binding, and wear at edges. Overall, in fine condition, signature is bold and clear.

Extensively illustrated with black and white photographs throughout, this book was, according to the front paste-down, "the first biennial to document modern art in the United States". Motherwell discusses American art from Jackson Pollock, Richard Diebenkorn and Elmer Bischof, but clearly, the book is not limited to American artists as there are references to Van Gogh, Paul Klee, Picasso, Matisse, and many others. Interestingly, Motherwell himself designed the front cover, and with the addition of his signature to the title page, this book truly becomes a collectible.
Estimated Value $375 - 475.

Realized $403
