Twelve monthly grids and full-color artwork
Mark Rothko said that the subject matter of his paintings came from the extremes of human emotion. His extraordinary achievement was the communication of tragedy and elation through forms reduced to starkest simplicity—oftentimes a pair of rectangles. Born Marcus Rothkowitz in a Latvian Jewish community, the artist emigrated to the United States at the age of ten. After a series of artistic metamorphoses, he established himself as a leader among New York’s artistic avant-garde in the late 1940s, that moment when the devastation of a global war shunted creative impulses into radically new directions.
