Mark Rothko

Thames & Hudson, 2001 - 296 pages
In this major critical appraisal, beautifully illustrated throughout, Diane Waldman analyses in detail the progression of Mark Rothko’s work, from his early figurative experiments of the 1920s to the emergence of his characteristic mature abstract style, and an illuminating discussion of the achievement of the late canvases. She writes of Mark Rothko’s childhood as an immigrant from Russia, his student days at Yale, his early career as a struggling artist, and his crucial role in the development of the New York School of Abstract Expressionism. His relationship with contemporaries Adolph Gottlieb and Clyfford Still is also examined in depth. A detailed chronology of Rothko’s life, photographs of the artist, and an exhaustive exhibitions list and bibliography complete this important assessment of a central figure in the art of the 20th century.
