Displaying items by tag: the red and black no. 24

The New York School artist Robert Motherwell could be ponderous in oil on canvas. But on paper, he was lighter and looser, to judge from the Kasmin Gallery’s career-spanning mini-survey of Mr. Motherwell’s drawings and collages (organized with the artist’s Dedalus Foundation). Working with ink, charcoal, acrylic and assorted labels and wrapping papers, Mr. Motherwell offset strong colors and muscular gestures with the suggestion of chance and accident.

The show includes notable works from every phase of Mr. Motherwell’s long career, from the loopy 1951 ink drawing “Fowl” to the vibrant mixed-media piece “The Red and Black No. 24” of 1987-88.
