The first collection of Mark Rothko's writings, which range the entire span of his career While the collected writings of many major 20th-century artists, including Barnett Newman, Robert Motherwell, and Ad Reinhardt, have been published, Mark Rothko's writings have only recently come to light, beginning with the critically acclaimed The Artist's Reality: Philosophies of Art. Rothko's other written works have yet to be brought together into a major publication. Writings on Art fills this significant void; it includes some 90 documents--including short essays, letters, statements, and lectures--written by Rothko over the course of his career. The texts are fully annotated, and a chronology of the artist's life and work is also included. This provocative compilation of both published and unpublished writings from 1934--69 reveals a number of things about Rothko: the importance of writing for an artist who many believed had renounced the written word; the meaning of transmission and transition that he experienced as an art teacher at the Brooklyn Jewish Center Academy; his deep concern for meditation and spirituality; and his private relationships with contemporary artists (including Newman, Motherwell, and Clyfford Still) as well as journalists and curators. As was revealed in Rothko's The Artist's Reality, what emerges from this collection is a more detailed picture of a sophisticated, deeply knowledgeable, and philosophical artist who was also a passionate and articulate writer.

This volume explores the profound and varied responses elicited by Russian-born American painter Mark Rothko's (1903-1970) most compelling creations. Rothko was classified as an abstract expressionist, although he himself rejected this label, and even resisted classification as an "abstract painter". Throughout his career, Rothko was concerned with what other people experienced when they looked at his canvases. As his work shifted from figurative imagery to luminous fields of color, his concern expanded to the setting in which his paintings were exhibited. In a series of analytic, personal, and even poetic essays by contemporary scholars, Rothko's works are analyzed. This volume also reproduces a "Scribble Book," in which Rothko jotted down his ideas on teaching art to children, and a sketchbook, both dating to the early years of the artist's career.

This extraordinary book is the first volume of the definitive catalogue raisonné of the work of Mark Rothko, one of the greatest abstract artists of the twentieth century. It documents Rothko's entire output of paintings on canvas and panel, reproducing all the works in color. An introductory text also investigates every essential feature of Rothko's art. David Anfam explores the underestimated variety as well as the amazing continuity of Rothko's pictures. These include the images for which Rothko is famous, the large, hypnotic, and poignant fields of color along with almost 400 further pictures that reveal a far less well known figure who was attuned by turns to realism, expressionism, surrealism, and the avant-garde issues of his era. Anfam presents a radical overview of Rothko's achievement, offering an analysis of its sources and themes: these extend from a study of such old masters as Rembrandt and Vermeer to his eventual groundbreaking vision of painting as an environment, expressed in the mural cycles and the architectural framework of the Rothko Chapel in Houston. Anfam pays special attention to the physical makeup of the paintings, as well as to Rothko's innovative sense of space, color, and surface, his complex technical procedures, and the symbolism of the work. This is combined with an account of Rothko's stylistic evolution and its chronology, tracing its development from figuration to an abstract vision imbued with a profound grasp of how the viewer has an interactive role to play in perceiving the works. The volume also includes the most extensive Rothko bibliography ever published. The fruit of almost a decade of research, this monumental publication is the reference point for all future studies of Rothko's art.

Three Michigan Architects explores the domestic work of three seminal Modern architects who practiced in Ann Arbor from 1930 to the 1980s: George Brigham, Robert Metcalf, and David Osler. Featuring archival plans, drawings, and photographs from the Bentley Historical Library, this catalog is the culmination of the 2014 exhibition series and symposium of the same name. Three Michigan Architects examines each practitioner's interpretation of the Modern vocabulary. George Brigham was one of the earliest architects to bring the International Style to the Midwest. Robert Metcalf favored straightforward designs for functional, minimalist living spaces. David Osler designed streamlined and poetic houses that physically and visually embraced their natural settings. The catalog situates their regional body of work in the larger context of Modern architecture in the U.S. that developed on the East and West Coasts.

"Mark Rothko was not only one of the most influential American painters of the twentieth century; he was a scholar, an educator, and a deeply spiritual human being. Born Marcus Yakovlevich Rotkovitch, he emigrated from the Russian Empire to the United States at age ten, already well educated in the Talmud and carrying with him bitter memories of the pogroms and persecutions visited upon the Jews of Latvia. Few artists have achieved success as quickly, and by the mid-twentieth century, Rothko's artwork was being displayed in major museums throughout the world. In May 2012 his painting Orange, Red, Yellow was auctioned for nearly $87 million, setting a new Christie's record. Author Annie Cohen-Solal gained access to archival materials no previous biographer had seen. As a result, her book is an extraordinarily detailed portrait of Rothko the man and the artist, an uncommonly successful painter who was never comfortable with the idea of his art as a commodity"--

ROTHKO A bilingual English/German edition Rothko, as depicted by Friesen, is a consumed artist, compelled by forces unseen and perhaps unknown; the artist is driven at a pace to create that defies both logic and sensibility. It, the play, reaches into its audience and provides it with an opportunity to contemplate the very essence of life itself, especially that life lived by an artist who knows his calling and strives to achieve it in spite of the constraints that seek to deter him. This play is laced with cleverness, wit, and understanding. One leaves a reading or production of Rothko with a clear and honest appreciation for the trials and conflicts that harass the artist and attempt to deter him from his task.

This is a tale as old as the hills, of one man’s right to dream, to see not only the big picture but also all the little pixels that hold it all together. It is about one man’s struggle to be not only an oily painter but also a man. It is about a friendship between that man and another man, a larger, well built, more purposeful man but a man none the less, and how a mutual respect allows them to toilet together without fear of petty reprisals. It is these men, two shiny-headed baldy men in ill-fitting suits and their moustaches, one economy and one business class, each poised on the cusp, between a weak chin and an intermittently dripping nose, and their struggle to simply . . . ‘be’.

Having picked up the wrong man at the airport, Vanessa Aldridge can't imagine what her boss will say. But when her passenger kills two men, steals the car and abandons her in the centre of Rome dressed only in her lingerie and high heels, she reckons she might be able to take a guess. In jail and out of a job, a visit from a consular official persuades her that the worst is over; and so it is, if you don't count being kidnapped and forced to cross the Alps on horseback. And she hasn't even met Arthur Shepherd yet. Arthur's a cleaner working for Lambeth Council. His chief accountabilities include knifing, shooting, strangling or occasionally shoving under buses, anyone who might prove an embarrassment to the nation. When a number of his colleagues find themselves on the sticky end of a variety of sharp, heavy or very high velocity bits of metal, Arthur reasons he could well be next. The Rothko Room is a tale of murder, music, fine art, tea and toilets.

A pioneering exploration of Rothko's deep and sustained engagement with the history of art While Mark Rothko (1903-1970) has long been considered a preeminent figure in 20th-century art, few publications have examined his work within the broader context of Western art, even though Rothko himself continuously sought it out as inspiration. Rothko had a profound interest in history and art history--including Greek and Roman mythology, Egyptian fables, Byzantine and early Italian gold-ground paintings, and masterworks of the Renaissance and Dutch Golden Age. He first traveled to Europe in 1950, starting in Paris and winding through Venice, Arezzo, Siena, Florence, and Rome; along the way, he admired frescoes by Fra Angelico and architecture by Michelangelo. This beautiful book examines the influence of the artist's travels on his oeuvre. It presents Rothko's engagement with important classical and Old Master works, highlighting older techniques and ideas that the artist may have sought to emulate. Works representative of Rothko's entire corpus are beautifully illustrated with full-page color plates. The book also contains writings by the artist--selected for publication by his son--that document his appreciation of art history in his own words.
