III. Studio Photographs
There are almost 1000 images of Motherwell's studios (and occasionally his homes), dating from 1957 to 1991. The series documents the progress of his painting, early states of some works, and the order and groupings in which they were made.
IV. Painted Polaroids
As part of Motherwell's working process, he sometimes took multiple Polaroids of works in progress and painted over them, experimenting with different compositions and color combinations. This series contains over two hundred Polaroids of thirty-nine different paintings, most from the 1980s.
V. Lecture Slides
These slides are divided into two sections with the bulk of them from his time as a professor at Hunter College and when he lectured as a guest at other venues for various events. These slides seem not to be arranged in any particular way, but their order on the original slide carousel and storage boxes was maintained. There is a preponderance of slides of Picasso’s work because Motherwell taught courses on Picasso, but there are
many of other modernist artists’ works. The second set of slides was divided into four parts by Motherwell for a series of lectures he gave in 1977.
VI. Artwork Photographs
Photographs of individual artworks make up about eighty percent of the photograph archive, totalling more than 24,000 photographs in a various formats-transparencies, prints, slides, polaroids, and negatives. This series contains images of nearly all works of art that Motherwell made. In a number cases, there are photographs of the work in progress or earlier states of a piece in addition to the final image. The series is arranged in two subseries: Unique Works (paintings, collages, paintings on paper, and drawings) and Prints (including monotypes, unique proofs and tapestries).

Administrative Information

Processing Information: Processed 2004, by Eve Lambert, Dedalus Fellow, under the direction of Michelle Elligott, Museum Archivist.

Scope And Content Note: The Robert Motherwell Scrapbooks consist of 10 boxes of various sizes for a total of 4 linear feet. The scrapbooks document Motherwell’s  career from the 1940s to 1991. The materials include exhibition announcements, brochures, catalogues, reviews and articles by art critics as John Canaday, Dore Ashton, Hilton Kramer, Peter Schjeldahl, John Russell, Clement Greenberg, Emily Genauer, and Grace Glueck. The materials document Motherwell’s transition from painting to collage-making, his interest in teaching and literature, his involvement with politics and activism, and his achievements as an artist. The majority of the collection dates from the 1970s to the early 1990s.

Condition: The Robert Motherwell Scrapbooks were originally housed in twenty-two black binders and two bound Scrapbooks. The binders contained plastic sleeves backed by acidic black paper into which documents had been slipped. Both the plastic and the black paper were hastening the deterioration of the archival material. The materials were rehoused in acid-free archival folders and boxes. The records are in relatively good condition. Some clippings are glued to a backing of acidic black paper, and glue has started to show through. A few original documents show signs of deterioration.
