Editorial Reviews

Kenneth Baker
This book, which reproduces in full color one hundred of Rothko's paintings, prints, and drawings, is an elegant record of Rothko's work. -- San Francisco Chronicle
Phyllis Tuchman
....Weiss's text situates Rothko's oeuvre within an absorbing cultural context....[He] creates a new way to distinguish Rothko's urban achievements from those of, say Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning during their "landscape" years...
