Robert Motherwell was an artist that worked in the nonrepresentational styles called Abstract Expressionist. Even though his paintings lacked clear objective iconography, his painting’s subject matter focused on the Spanish Civil War, specifically the authoritarian dominance of the Franco regime. Since these works are non-representational, they require some contextual research of the work in order to fully understand the meaning.
