Mark Rothko

Break into the Light

Part of Masterworks

Mark Rothko's awe-inspiring yet deceptively simple, iconic colour 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 colour 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 colour, whilst experiencing his pieces displayed in full, free of clutter, for you to immerse yourself and be swept away.
