Three Poems - Black Sun/Untitled by Robert Motherwell
This work which includes two lithographs, the first Black Sun and a second Untitled image (located on either side of one folio page).
Black Sun demonstrates Motherwell's unique print aesthetic on yellow colored Japanese Masa Dosa paper. The Untitled work shows Motherwell's innovative exploration of black on white. Both works are the 8th and 9th of twelve lithographs connected to the poem titled "Return, for Jose Alvarado."
The lithographs are part of a 4 page folio with text of the poem printed in Spanish (red) and English (black) as illustrated. An impressive piece in pristine condition for discerning collectors.
