In his next three lithographs with ULAE, Motherwell assigned titles that inscribe site references onto the stones used: Celtic, Douglas, and Aberdeen. All three titles invoke the geography of Scotland, including Aberdeen, a city in northeastern Scotland and the place in Washington State where Motherwell was born (see also cat. nos. 102 and 103).
