Some thirty “ink paintings” by Robert Motherwell will be on view at The Museum of Modern Art from September 8 through October 13. Part of a series of 600 works entitled Lyric Suite, twenty-four of the small paintings on exhibition have been given to the Museum by the artist in memory of his close friend, the American poet Frank O’Hara. This generous gift makes it possible to show a portion of Lyric Suite, which, due to its size, can perhaps never be exhibited in its entirety. Directed and installed in the Northeast Galleries on the first floor by Eila Kokkinen, Assistant Curator for Drawings of The Museum of Modern Art’s Department of Drawings and Prints, the series represents an important phase of development in Motherwell’s work.
