Sept. 26 - Dec. 21, 2008
With this exhibition, Collection in Context, the University of Saint Joseph Art Gallery inaugurates a series of installations devoted to in-depth examination of major works of art in the permanent collection. Like our periodic exhibitions by contemporary artists whose works address issues of spirituality, these installations are inspired by University of Saint Joseph's mission and history.
While future loan exhibitions may explore the context in which a single painting, print or drawing was created, this first installation highlights seven significant works that find a particularly rich context within the permanent collection. Collection in Context honors an art collection that began in the earliest years of the University and celebrates the inauguration of Pamela Trotman Reid as eighth President of University of Saint Joseph.

One of America's major abstract painters of the 20th century, Robert Motherwell is also renowned as a prolific and innovative printmaker. A la pintura was his first artist's book (livre d'artiste), combining text and images in a series inspired by Rafael Alberti's poem cycle of the same name.
Tatyana Grosman, founder of Universal Limited Art Editions (ULAE), had urged Motherwell to make a livre d'artiste since the early 1960s, but only upon discovering a translation of Alberti's poems in 1967 did Motherwell find "... a text whose every line set into motion my innermost painterly feelings."
At the ULAE workshop, printer Donn Steward introduced Motherwell to the aquatint technique which, combined with etching, conveyed in ink on paper the nuances of tone and texture the artist had achieved in his paintings. The 24 prints in A la pintura reflect the great care with which the artist selected colors and positioned his images in relation to the bilingual text of the six poems he chose from Alberti's cycle. Critically acclaimed, the book became the first contemporary livre d'artiste exhibited at New York's Museum of Modern Art.
Rafael Alberti was himself a painter as well as a poet. With Federico García Lorca he belonged to the innovative circle of Spanish poets that became known as the Generation of '27. A la pintura (1948) was written in Argentina, where Alberti lived in exile following the fascist victory in the Spanish Civil War and the upheavals of WWII. An homage to painting, it features poems dedicated to individual colors and to the artist's tools, as well as to individual artists such as Dürer and Picasso.
