The Rothko Edit showcases artworks that take inspiration from Rothko’s distinctive visual style. Bringing together colour field paintings and abstract photography, the curated collection reflects elements of Rothko’s style that make his art so iconic and enduring.
Born in modern-day Lavia in 1903, Markus Rothkowitz would go on to become one of the most famous Colour Field and Abstract artists around the world. He moved to the United States of America aged 10, and having had a deeply orthodox Jewish upbringing, swore he would never enter synagogue again following the death of his father that year. Making his artistic start in New York, the artist would go from strength to strength.
The Rothko Edit showcases works that reflect Rothko’s distinctive visual style. Our curator has put together a selection of paintings, prints and photography that pay homage to the colour field paintings and abstract expressionist works of Mark Rothko. Some large, some small, some new, some slightly older, each piece in the collection offers a different understanding and appreciation of the 20th century artist’s groundbreaking approach to modern art.
