As the Washington Post says, "Dore Ashton brings the reader to the very core of Mark Rothko's art." She draws on her countless interviews with the artist—giving little credence to the false mythology surrounding his work—to take us to the heart of Rothko's painting, showing its derivation from his reading, travel, and thought.

Dore Ashton befriended Mark Rothko, the famed impressionist painter and she shares her insight into the life of this artist in her book, About Rothko. With some beautiful images, you get a sense of the larger than life work of Rothko. This artist sought to bring out the internal inspiration onto the canvas. To delve into the inner demons we all see and splash them onto his master pieces. This book is a good start to peek into a complex man who pushed the envelope. He could be gregarious and engaging one minute and a recluse the next. Ashton shares her first hand relationship which gives this book a colorful peek into an artist’s life.
