Motherwell often devoted intense periods of time to a series of works on a specific theme. The germinal work for the Hollow Men Suite was a small 1979 pencil drawing on Mylar, which Motherwell incorporated into a 1983 painting as automatic charcoal drawing. Successive variations on this theme made their way into the Hollow Men Suite and the illustrated book Three Poems (cat. no. 387.1-.27).
