Mark Rothko (American, born Russia, 1903–1970), was central to the development of postwar abstract painting in the United States and is best known for the luminous paintings he made in the 1950s and 1960s. These iconic works are characterized by their soft-edged rectangular forms and broad, thin washes of color. Although Rothko worked on large canvases, he felt that the scale was intimate, establishing a close physical relationship with the viewer. These striking images invite contemplation and spiritual communion.
