Course Description

Marc Rothko belongs to the generation of American artists who completely revolutionized the essence and design of Abstract Expressionist painting in the middle of the 20th century. In 1948, Rothko began to create what he called 'multi-forms,' paintings in which he increasingly abandoned themes that related to figurative art, and he turned to the abstract for which he became known. Rothko insisted that he was not an abstract artist, but he said he was interested only in expressing basic human emotions, such as tragedy, ecstasy, doom, and so on, through fields of color combination. Viewers who see these works appear to be moved emotionally by these color combinations and often spend extended periods of time contemplating them.
