Robert Motherwell - Five Great Opens

From October 15th Bernard Jacobson Gallery will stage the most significant exhibition of Robert Motherwell's work in England since his 1978 Royal Academy retrospective, organized by Norman Rosenthal. The show will feature five rarely seen key works from the late abstract expressionist's Open series and marks the first part of a major two part exhibition on the series. The second part will follow in June 2009.

A definitive book on the Open paintings, with extended essays by John Yau, Matthew Collings, Robert Hobbs, Robert Matteson, Donald Kuspit, Mel Gooding and Saul Ostrow, is due to be released by 21 publishing in June 2009, to coincide with the second part of the exhibition.
