Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A work biography of the famous abstract expressionist whose canvasses articulate many of the ideas and feelings of modern art, particularly the New York school. Ashton avoids gossip and concentrates on influences, the poets, philosophers, world events, and other artists who helped shape Rothko's imagery. She uses interviews, Rothko's own writing, and her conversations with the artist to portray the complexity of his genius and the scope of an artist's working life. This vital companion to Rothko's work includes, alas, only a few color and black and white reproductions. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
