Robert Motherwell considered collage to be the modern equivalent of still-life painting. His collages include scraps of labels, bits of paper and various remnants of daily life. They became, in the words of the artist, “a kind of private diary—a privately coded diary, not made with an actual autobiographical intention, but one that functions in an associative way for me…. For a painter as abstract as myself, the collages offer a way of incorporating bits of the everyday world into pictures.”
