This book is the first volume in the definitive catalogue raisonné of Mark Rothko, one of the greatest abstract artists of the 20th century. Written by the researcher David Anfam, it documents the painter's complete oeuvre and contains colour reproductions of all his Works.
Mark Rothko, one of the pivotal members of the New York School, is best known for his large compositions based on rectangular fields of luminous colours. An icon of contemporary art, Rothko expressed emotions in his painting through abstract language.
British art historian David Anfam is senior curator at the Clyfford Still Museum in Denver and an expert on abstract art, a subject on which he has published extensively.
