Mark Rothko was an abstract expressionist painter who pioneered the way for American artists. He died tragically in 1970, leaving behind two children and hundreds of marked up pages in the form of a manuscript on his views on art. Christopher Rothko talks about the book he and his sister eventually published The Artist’s Reality: Philosophies of Art, and the legacy of his father’s work.
Then, curator Harry Cooper walks Bob through the new exhibit In the Tower: Mark Rothko at the National Gallery of Art’s East Building Tower Gallery. This is a rare chance to see Rothko’s 1964 black-on-black canvases that the artists created in conjunction with his work for the Menil Collection in Houston, Texas. [Broadcast Date: May 25, 2010]
