With contributions by John Gage, Carol Mancusi-Ungaro, Barbara Novak, Brian O'Doherty, and Mark Rosenthal, This richly illustrated book reproduces in full color more than one hundred of Mark Rothko's paintings, prints, and drawings, including many of the stunningly simple yet enthralling rectangle paintings for which he is famous. The volume provides commentary on various formal aspects of Rothko's work, interviews with contemporary artists who reflect on Rothko's artistic legacy, and a chronology of the Russian-born artist's life (1903-1970).
