Night Dream

Robert Motherwell

This collage includes fragments from the prints Yellow Flight, 1986, and Sirens II, 1988. An early version of the collage contained a sheet music fragment, which was subsequently painted over with black (as per studio photograph where it is visible). This work was untitled when the catalogue for the April 1989 Knoedler exhibition was printed, but gallery checklists reveal that it had been given the title Night Dream by the time the show opened.
