Rothko:
An Abstract Humanist

Every Tuesday - Sunday
12:00 pm
(2003) This program offers a rare examination of the life and work of Mark Rothko. Rothko gave abstraction the emotional power of music
and poetry. He painted ideas rather than objects and, in the process, created a deeply original pictorial language. One of the most important artists of his generation, Rothko is perhaps best known for his work in the style of the New York School and was a peer of many other illustrious abstract artists: Jackson Pollock, Barnett Newman, Clyfford Still, Franz Kline, and Robert Motherwell, to name only five. 52 minutes
