Artist of the Day- Mark Rothko (click on image to view individually)

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.”
