By Suzanne Page and Christopher Rothko 

This illustrated catalog is published to accompany the retrospective exhibition devoted to American artist Mark Rothko, curated by Suzanne Page and the artist's son, Christopher Rothko. The show features over one hundred works, including previously unpublished works and archive material. 

Born Markus Rothkowitz in Latvia in the early 20th century, the man who would soon become known as Mark Rothko began painting in the 1930s. While his early works were influenced by mythology and Surrealism, his first abstract paintings emerged in the 1940s with the Multiform series, followed by his Classic Years and the Black and Gray paintings. A key figure in the New York art scene, Rothko was an uncategorizable artist who deployed an extensive palette of color and light with a talent that consistently triggers emotion. His great sensitivity shaped a poetic, enigmatic universe that leaves no one untouched.
