Mark Rothko (1903-1970) was one of the foremost members of
the Abstract Expressionist movement. He is known for his colour
field paintings, which used staining techniques to create abstract
fields of colour on large canvases.

"All the decent books on Rothko disappear quickly, so a collective sigh of relief among art book sellers here, as this new one is very much wel comed from Chronicle Books." * The Bookseller *
