Tate Publishing is proud to announce a new series on important international artists, beautifully designed and with superbly printed reproductions. The Essential Artists series provides, in each volume, everything necessary for the enjoyment and understanding of the world's greatest artists:

• Introduction to the artists' lives and works
• Information on materials and working methods
• Writings by the artists and by contemporary and current critics
• Where to see the art
• More than 100 expertly printed color reproductions

Written by leading experts on the artists Mark Rothko (1903-1970) was one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. His work is intensely charged with meaning and emotion, portraying human feelings rather then color or form. In this lavishly illustrated survey, Bonnie Clearwater traces the development of Rothko's career, from his arrival in the United States as a child through to the formation of his mature style, and examines his initial influences and interactions with other artists. Drawing on the artist's own letters and writings, The Rothko Book provides the most comprehensive introduction yet to this complex and fascinating figure.
