Rothko, Christopher. MARK ROTHKO. 386 pages, including 275 color plates. 4to, cloth. New York, Rizzoli Electa, 2022.
Deluxe and comprehensive, this revelatory volume examines the work Mark Rothko (1903-1970), a pioneer of the New York School and major figure in the Abstract Expressionist movement. Illustrated with more than 275 images that explore his paintings, prints, and works on paper, this book highlights the best-known and also lesser-known works by Rothko-from his early figurative and Surrealist works to his mesmerizing color-field paintings of immense scale to the more restricted palette of his luminous later works and his final series of black-and-gray paintings. This is the first book to include foldouts that highlight works from the Rothko Chapel in Houston and the Rothko Room at the Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C.
Kate Rothko Prizel and Christopher Rothko draw on intimate knowledge of the artworks and the artist's life to give a fuller picture of their father and place him within the context of art history; they endeavor to give an impartial portrait-the man and his work-while introducing personal details where they can enlighten. Alexander Nemerov and Hiroshi Sugimoto provide reflections about the artist's work.
