Mark Rothko In New York

A large collection of Mark Rothko’s work is held by New York’s five encyclopedic art museums – the Brooklyn Museum, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. This volume illustrates every work by Rothko in these museums in colour reproductions and surveys his entire career. Whilst Rothko is most famous for his color-field canvases, he also created early oils and watercolors. This work focuses on how working in New York shaped Rothko’s career and examines the question of what it means to be an artist in this city.
