“The people who weep before my pictures,” said Rothko, “are having the same religious experience I had when I painted them.” This penetrating exploration of the artist’s work takes us from his seminal influences—such as Fra Angelico’s frescoes in Florence—into his studio on the Bowery in NYC. The eye is allowed to linger on the multilayered planes of the color field paintings and shifting moods of his chapel in Houston, and to absorb the deep silence on display in a retrospective in Holland. Featuring readings by Rothko’s son from his father’s writings.
