Motherwell and Frankenthaler’s divorce is finalized.

Motherwell and his daughter Jeannie fly to London, where he signs the thirty-nine editions made the previous year at Kelpra Studios. They then travel to St. Gall, Switzerland, where he works on a new series of lithographs at the Galerie im Erker.

Robert Motherwell: Bilder und Collagen, 1967–1970 opens at the Galerie im Erker in St. Gall (June 12-August 28). The exhibition catalogue includes a new poem by Octavio Paz inspired by Motherwell’s paintings and writings, “Piel del Mundo/Sonido del Mundo” (The Skin of the World/ The Sound of the World).
