The enduring art works of Mark Rothko, with their large expanses of contrasting colours and uneven, hazy divisions, strive to convey emotions rarely attempted in modern art. His contrasts were carefully chosen in order to convey a wide range of human feelings from foreboding and despair to hope and rapture.
Mark Rothko's art work is characterized by rigorous attention to formal elements such as colour, shape, balance, depth, composition, and scale; yet, he refused to consider his paintings solely in these terms. He said
“It is a widely accepted notion among painters that it does not matter what one paints as long as it is well painted. This is the essence of academicism. There is no such thing as a good painting about nothing” Take your pick from a wide range of art prints by Mark Rothko here at artrepublic. .
