Mark Rothko

No. 2 (No. 7 and No. 2)

Mark Rothko
  • Date: c.1951
  • Style: Color Field Painting
  • Genre: abstract
  • Media: mixed technique, canvas

Now applied in thin washes (often composed of both oil and egg-based media), Rothko's color achieved a new luminosity. The artist's technique appears simple, but on close examination is richly varied in its range of effects. At times, paint can be seen running upward across the surface; this is because Rothko often inverted a picture while working on it, sometimes changing the final orientation at a late stage.
