Mark Rothko

Talk about color. Born Marcus Rothkowitz in Russia, Jewish, immigrated to U.S. with his family when he was 10 years old. Dropped out of Yale. 1903-1970. He didn’t seem too happy. When he started these big abstract color paintings, they started out yellow, orange, bright, and then turned darker. His last work was quite dark, literally. I like that they were big canvases, that it’s just about color, and that they make you look at the edges where the colors touch.

I like the ones where there are colors that look similar next to each other, where you don’t notice that they are two different colors first and then you see the edge and notice that there is an edge.
