Painting American Angels (for Robert Motherwell) by Hunter Madsen

American Angels (for Robert Motherwell)

"What I realized was that Americans potentially could paint like angels but that there was no creative principle around, so that everybody who liked modern art was copying it. Gorky was copying Picasso. Pollock was copying Picasso. De Kooning was copying Picasso. ...And all we needed was a creative principle."
