Robert Motherwell (American, 1915-1991)

Untitled, plate 23 from the Octavio Paz Suite, 1988, edition of 50, published by The Limited Editions Club, New York (Dedalus, 437; Terenzio & Belknap, 376). Initialed and numbered "R.M./31/50" in pencil l.r. Lithograph on chine appliqué on wove paper, image size 11 1/8 x 14 3/8 in. (28.2 x 36.4 cm), framed.
Condition: Pale staining and/or fox mark to right margin, not examined out of frame.
Estimate $1,500-2,000

The work cannot be removed from its frame as doing so will preclude re-assembly. The visible margins are about t\2 inches (so the visible sheet size is 15 1/4 x 18 1/2 inches). The image size includes the embossed mark surrounding the main image. The size of the chine collé is 10 9/16 x 13 3/4 in. This is from the edition without text.
