Museum Mondays: The Columbus Museum of Art presents Mark Rothko: The Decisive Decade, 1940–50, a major exhibition tracing the evolution of Rothko’s work from his Surrealist-influenced, figurative compositions of the early 40s to the abstract, color field paintings for which he is best known.

We invite you to visit our newest gallery space and exhibit, Rothko/Sugimoto: Dark Paintings and Seascapes, at 6 Burlington Gardens. This inaugural exhibition pairs eight acrylic paintings by Mark Rothko and eight gelatin silver prints by Hiroshi Sugimoto, revealing two different artistic approaches that arrive at similar conclusions.

Reblog of the day: This #ThrowbackThursday pick shows Mark Rothko with one of his commissioned paintings for the Menil Chapel in Houston, TX.  These late works, much like works currently on view in our exhibit, Rothko/Sugimoto: Dark Paintings and Seascapes, relate less to any personal tragedy in Rothko’s life, and more to eternal and depersonalized metaphysical questions.

Reblog of the day: Rothko/Sugimoto: Dark Paintings and Seascapes opens TODAY at Pace London.  The exhibition marks the first private gallery presentation of Rothko’s work in London in nearly fifty years.



Rothko/Sugimoto: Paintings and Seascapes, the inaugural exhibition at Pace London’s flagship gallery at 6 Burlington Gardens, debuts this Thursday, October 4, 2012!

The show juxtaposes Mark Rothko’s late black and grey paintings with Hiroshi Sugimoto’s photographs of bodies of water, exploring the visual and conceptual affinities between the two.

The concept for the exhibition originated in 2010, when Hiroshi Sugimoto joined Pace and was introduced to Christopher Rothko, the son of Mark Rothko.

Even to the untrained eye, the work of Russian-American painter Mark Rothko is dazzling. His art is currently on show at several exhibitions in London.  Look out his upcoming exhibit with Hiroshi Sugimoto at Pace London this Fall!  (via Where in London can I see original Rothko paintings? - Telegraph)

Curator Nayia Yiakoumaki introduces to Rothko in Britain.

The Whitechapel Gallery’s archives of original photographs, letters from the artist and recordings of visitors’ memories, alongside Rothko’s painting Light Red Over Black (1957) bring the original 1961 exhibition vividly to life.
