MARK ROTHKO EXHIBIT
ST. LOUIS ART MUSEUM
A rare collection of Mark Rothko paintings
is assembled at the St. Louis Art Museum,
and is on exhibit until September 14.
That gives you 3 more weeks to see
"Tragic and Timeless: The Art of Mark Rothko."
If you've only seen Rothko's work
in books, film and posters,
you owe it to yourself to stand in front
of a Rothko original canvas.
Somehow the colors and subtleties
come to life when you experience him up close.
(A very emotional experience!)
Rothko (1903-1970) is of Russian Jewish descent,
and his paintings are setting all auction records.
("Orange, Red, Yellow" recently sold for $175-million
at Christie's auctions.)
