Mark Rothko

Mark Rothko born Marcus Rothkowitz (1903–1970) was a Latvian-born Jewish American painter and printmaker who is classified as an abstract expressionist, although he rejected not only the label but even being an abstract painter.

Below is an hour long BBC ‘Power Of Art’ documentary on his career. I have a few reservations about the way this is done but ultimately, it does deliver a solid picture of some of what the guy was about. See it through if you have the time, it’s a little dark in places but well worth it…
