A Rothko Experience

leave a comment »

Erica from small shop has a great post over at La Dolce Vita discussing Mark Rothko paintings.  I recommend you take a read.  Here’s a sample:

1) Rothko was deeply influenced by color theories first developed in the 17th & 18th centuries; 2) His paintings were quite large in size, and were meant to be viewed “up close and personal”; 3) It was Rothko’s intention that viewers have a sensory experience with his paintings.

White Center (Yellow Pink and Lavender on Rose), 1950 *Formerly owned by Rockefeller, this painting recently sold for $72.8 million!
