Mark Rothko: Break Into The Light
Regular price $35.00
Mark Rothko's awe-inspiring yet deceptively simple, iconic color field paintings belie the mythical and emotional complexity behind them. Rothko put his heart and soul into creating works that were to act upon the viewer in an almost physical way, progressing from figurative and symbolist works to eventually using shimmering and enveloping color to elevate you to a higher spiritual awareness. This gorgeous book enables you to discover the themes, thinking and methodology behind the oeuvre, from Greek tragedy and Nietzsche to music and color, whilst experiencing his pieces displayed in full, free of clutter, for you to immerse yourself and be swept away.
