Motherwell Foundation Dispute Stalls Raisonné

The lawsuit between Robert Motherwell’s Dedalus Foundation and a longtime employee who had worked closely with the late Abstract Expressionist painter continues, “throwing a kink in efforts to complete the artist’s comprehensive catalogue raisonné.” Since the pair of lawsuits were filed last March in New York State court delays have caused little progress to be made in resolving the antagonists’ heated claims, which include accusations of theft, self dealing, and scholarly incompetence.
