The textured blue background of this images was achived using French transfer paper, a thin, transparent material coated with gum solution. Motherwell used liquid tusche as a drawing medium. Unlike a print made by drawing directly on a plate, the image does not get reversed in the transfer.
Through this technique devised by Hollander, which masks the image out of the background, Motherwell developed a hollowed-out version of the Summertime in Italy image.

The Artist

Robert Motherwell

Robert Motherwell was an American Abstract Expressionist painter, a printmaker, and editor. Most famous for his Elegy to the Spanish Republic (a series to many people’s surprise), Motherwell’s work often contains bold background colours with thick asymmetrical paint strokes (often in black), such as Red Queen, Homage á Picasso, and of course as mentioned before, Elegy to the Spanish Republic.
