Mark Rothko : from the inside out by Christopher Rothko( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mark Rothko (1903-1970), world-renowned icon of Abstract Expressionism, is rediscovered in this wholly original examination of his art and life written by his son. Synthesizing rigorous critique with personal anecdotes, Christopher, the younger of the artist's two children, offers a unique perspective on this modern master. Christopher Rothko draws on an intimate knowledge of the artworks to present eighteen essays that look closely at the paintings and explore the ways in which they foster a profound connection between viewer and artist through form, color, and scale. The prominent commissions for the Rothko Chapel in Houston and the Seagram Building murals in New York receive extended treatment, as do many of the lesser-known and underappreciated aspects of Rothko's oeuvre, including reassessments of his late dark canvases and his formidable body of works on paper. The author also discusses the artist's writings of the 1930s and 1940s, the significance of music to the artist, and our enduring struggles with visual abstraction in the contemporary era. Finally, Christopher Rothko writes movingly about his role as the artist's son, his commonalities with his father, and the terms of the relationship they forged during the writer's childhood." -- Publisher's description

The artist's reality : philosophies of art by Mark Rothko( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mark Rothko (1903-1970) created a new and impassioned form of abstract painting over the course of his career. Rothko also wrote a number of essays and critical reviews during his lifetime, adding his thoughtful, intelligent, and opinionated voice to the debates of the contemporary art world. Although the artist never published a book of his varied and complex views, his heirs indicate that he occasionally spoke of the existence of such a manuscript to friends and colleagues. Stored in a warehouse since the artist's death more than thirty years ago, this manuscript, titled The Artist's Reality, is now being published for the first time." "This book discusses Rothko's ideas on the modern art world, art history, myth, beauty, the challenges of being an artist in society, the true nature of "American art," and much more The Artist's Reality also includes an introduction by Christopher Rothko, the artist's son, who describes the discovery of the manuscript and the complicated and fascinating process of bringing the manuscript to publication. The introduction is illustrated with a small selection of relevant examples of the artist's own work as well as with a reproduction of a page from the actual manuscript."--Jacket
Rothko/Sugimoto : dark paintings and seascapes by Pace London (Gallery)( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Following its recent announcement of plans to open a major gallery in Mayfair, Pace London is honored to present 'Rothko/Sugimoto: Dark Paintings and Seascapes' at 6 Burlington Gardens from 4 October through 17 November 2012. The inaugural exhibition juxtaposes Mark Rothko's late black and grey paintings with Hiroshi Sugimoto's contemporary photographs of bodies of water. The exhibition marks the first private gallery presentation of Rothko's work in London in nearly fifty years and continues Pace's five-decade tradition of exhibitions that explore affinities between artists working across decades and mediums. 'Dark Paintings and Seascapes' pairs eight acrylic paintings by Rothko and eight gelatin silver prints by Sugimoto, revealing two different artistic approaches that arrive at similar conclusions."--Gallery's press release
