About

 The Fondation Louis Vuitton is devoting a major exhibition to Mark Rothko, bringing together 115 works by the American painter in a presentation that closely resembles the artist's wishes.

This new exhibition catalogue brings together some 115 works from major institutional collections, including the National Gallery of Art in Washington, the Tate in London and the Phillips Collection in Washington, as well as from major international private collections, including that of the artist's family.

After moving to the United States, Mark Rothko began painting in the early 1930s. Although his early figurative works were marked by the influence of ancient mythology and surrealism, from the 1940s he moved towards an abstract aesthetic with his Multiformes series, followed by the Classics and Black and Grays.

His saturated colours and floating, expansive forms invite a sensitive, tactile experience, leaving the viewer to play a creative role in the work.

This vision of the painter aspires to a universal language that appeals to everyone, far removed from intellectualisation and the technical processes involved in creating art. 

Behind an apparent mystery and elusiveness imbued with spirituality, the emotional impact of his canvases leads us to question the horizon of our origins, our destiny and our existentiality.
