artnet Asks: Art Dealer and Robert Motherwell Champion Bernard Jacobson
by Coline Milliard

The Bernard Jacobson Gallery is something of a London institution. Opened in 1969, it has showcased the work of such illustrious 20th-century figures as Frank Stella, Robert Rauschenbert, and Helen Frankenthaler, to name but a few. Over the last decade, Bernard Jacobson has also become a staunch supporter of Robert Motherwell, building one of the world's most significant collections of his work.

To celebrate the centenary of the artist's birth on January 24th, Jacobson will inaugurate new premises on Duke Street in London's St. James's with a major retrospective of Motherwell's work. Ahead of the show, the dealer caught up with artnet News to explain why he feels Motherwell is the most important American artist of his generation.
