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

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 402 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

Mark Rothko : the works on canvas : catalogue raisonné by Mark Rothko( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the first volume of the definitive catalogue raisonné of the work of Mark Rothko, one of the greatest abstract artists of the twentieth century. It documents Rothko's entire output of paintings on canvas and panel, reproducing all the extant works in color. An introductory text also investigates every essential feature of Rothko's art. David Anfam explores the underestimated variety as well as the amazing continuity of Rothko's pictures. These include the images for which Rothko is famous - the large, hypnotic, and poignant fields of color - along with almost 400 further pictures that reveal a far less well known yet fascinating figure who was attuned by turns to realism, expressionism, surrealism, and the avant-garde issues of his era."--
Writings on art by Mark Rothko( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the collected writings of many major 20th-century artists, including Barnett Newman, Robert Motherwell and Ad Reinhardt, have been published, Mark Rothko's writings have only recently come to light, beginning with the critically acclaimed "Artist's Reality: Philosophies of Art". Rothko's other written works have yet to be brought together into a major publication. "Writings on Art" fills this significant void; it includes some 90 documents, including short essays, letters, statements and lectures, written by Rothko over the course of his career. The texts are fully annotated and a chronology of the artist's life and work is also included. This provocative compilation of both published and unpublished writings from 1934-69 reveals a number of things about Rothko: the importance of writing for an artist who many believed had renounced the written word; the meaning of transmission and transition that he experienced as an art teacher at the Brooklyn Jewish Center Academy; his deep concern for meditation and spirituality; and his private relationships with contemporary artists (including Newman, Motherwell and Clyfford Still) as well as journalists and curators. As was revealed in Rothko's "The Artist's Reality", what emerges from this collection is a more detailed picture of a sophisticated, deeply knowledgeable and philosophical artist, who was also a passionate and articulate writer
