Mark Rothko

New York Art World ®  - Commentary Index - Artists Listings - Themes

Mark Rothko is best known for his monumental paintings of two or more rectangles floated within a field of color.

Orange and yellow (1956) features two rectangles painted in the vibrant tones that Rothko favored.

Far from static, the rectangles seem to stretch and contract, while translucent, luminous colors bring them to life.

1903 - 1970
