This catalogue commemorates the retrospective of Mark Rothko (at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris, from October 18, 2023 to April 2, 2024,) the renowned American artist, and it was curated by Suzanne Pagé and Christopher Rothko, his son. It showcases more than 100 artworks, including No. 5 (Untitled) from the Chrysler Museum's collection.

Rothko, born Markus Rothkowitz in Latvia in the early 1900s, began painting in the 1930s, influenced by mythology and Surrealism. His first abstract works, such as the Multiform series, emerged in the 1940s, followed by his celebrated Classic Years and the Black and Gray paintings. A pioneer of the New York art scene, Rothko worked with an immense range of colour and light to create emotionally charged, enigmatic pieces that touch the soul.

About the Artist

Mark Rothko

Mark Rothko (1903 - 1970) was an influential American painter known for his iconic abstract expressionist works. Rothko's artistic journey was marked by a gradual shift towards abstraction. He initially experimented with various styles, including figurative and surrealist elements. However, it was during the 1940s that he began developing his signature style characterized by large, rectangular color fields. These paintings, often consisting of softly blurred blocks of intense hues, were intended to evoke emotional responses and create a profound sense of spirituality and transcendence. Today, his profound contributions to abstract art continue to captivate audiences, with his large-scale paintings displayed in major museums and galleries around the world. Rothko's work remains an enduring testament to the power of color, form, and emotion in the realm of abstract expressionism.
