The Modern Art Notes Podcast

Episode No. 612 features curators Susan Davidson and Stephanie Schrader.

Davidson is the curator of "Robert Motherwell: Pure Painting," which is at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth through September 3. The exhibition is the first Motherwell paintings retrospective in a quarter-century. Motherwell was a New York-based painter prominent in the development of abstract expressionism. The exhibition catalogue was published by Hatje Cantz Verlag. Amazon and Bookshop offer it for about $55. From Fort Worth, "Motherwell" will travel to the Bank Austria Kunstforum in Vienna.

Along with Freyda Spira and Thomas Lederballe, Schrader is a co-curator of "Beyond the Light: Identity and Place in 19th-Century Danish Art," which is at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, through August 20. The exception looks at the development of Danish art across both paintings and drawings, and shows how artists helped develop the nation's cultural identity. The excellent catalogue was published by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, which originated the show. Amazon and Bookshop offer it for about $45.
