Rothko’s work will be shown at the Museum of Fine Arts beginning September 24. These paintings appear so simple…but they are so moving.
“By 1949 Rothko had introduced a compositional format that he would continue to develop throughout his career. Composed of several vertically aligned rectangular forms set within a colored field, Rothko's "image" lent itself to a remarkable diversity of appearances.
Rothko never abandoned his conviction in the ability of abstract art to be experienced in emotionally expressive terms.”
