The Artist's Reality: Philosophies of Art by Mark Rothko

A righteous painting
creates a tangible space
for contemplation.

Mark Rothko, Dark Cloud, Light Cloud, 1957 - From the collection of the Fort Worth Museum of Modern Art
  • Video interview with Christopher Rothko, Mark Rothko's son and the book's editor: part 1, part 2
  • BBC series, The Power of Art, Part 8: Rothko
P.S. I'm gonna try this format for my book and music commentaries for a while. Brevity is a virtue when it comes to pretentious, uninformed bullshit. However, don't think it's a sign of laziness. 5-7-5 takes longer than you might think.

I received no compensation of any kind for this review.
