In addition, it notes that the bw frontis and specific other photographs are the work of Renate Ponsold Motherwell (the artist's wife). Motherwell's close friend, Mary Ann Caws, discusses the artist's paintings, drawings, and collages in relation to the wide variety of American and European literature and philosophy Motherwell saw as central to his art. Her reflections are grounded in an essential agreement with Motherwell that his work was a continuum: that his life and art were a matter of process, journey, and becoming. She explores his use of series, his bold color combinations representing solitude and death, and the idea of giving and receiving seen in his technique of collage. (from the dj).
