Robert Motherwell was an American abstract expressionist painter, printmaker, and editor. He was one of the youngest of the New York School, which also included Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, and Mark Rothko.
Trained in philosophy, Motherwell became an artist, regarded as among the most articulate of the abstract expressionist painters. He was known for his series of abstract paintings and prints which touched on political, philosophical and literary themes, such as the Elegies to the Spanish Republic.
Motherwell's Beside the Sea series was a response to the way the sea at high tide broke against the bulkhead near his Provincetown studio in a violent spray. Both the colors and the forms of this painting occupy a terrain that is somewhere between description and metaphor: the skeins of splashed paint that rise above the horizontal strokes suggest water whipped by wind, just as the ochres and blues of the horizontal lines suggest - but do not quite describe - the colors of sand and water. "One might say that the true way to 'imitate' nature is to employ its own processes," Motherwell later wrote.
