Autumn 1959-Winter 1960

Motherwell creates an extended series of gestural paintings in oil on paper (W190–W207) and new collages (C99-C120). Among these works are Figure 4 on an Elegy, The Black Sun, and the N.R.F. series (W104, W101, C104–C106).

In February, Motherwell resigns from Hunter College to concentrate on painting full time.
