MOSCOW  •  Garage: Center of Contemporary Culture  •  Ongoing
 
Featuring over a dozen paintings, the exhibition spans twenty years of the Latvian-born American painter's career, from 1949 to 1969, and includes No. 12 (Yellow, Orange, Red on Orange), 1954 as well as monumental studies for all three of Rothko’s famous mural projects: The Seagram Murals, The Holyoke Center at Harvard University and the Rothko Chapel at the University of St. Thomas in Houston. One of Rothko’s last grey and black paintings from 1969 is also  on view.

Mark Rothko (1903-1970) immigrated to the United States in 1913. He studied painting at Yale University from 1921-23, and was later awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts from Yale in 1969. Rothko has been the subject of six major surveys and retrospectives, including the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. (1998), which travelled to the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York and the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; the Kawamura Memorial Art Museum, Japan, which travelled to three museums in Japan (1995-96); the Tate Gallery, London, which travelled to Museum Ludwig, Cologne (1987-88); the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York (1978-79); and two exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1970 and 1961 - the retrospective in 1961 traveled to London, Amsterdam, Basel, Rome, and Paris. Rothko's work is in numerous permanent collections worldwide.

Dr. Irving Sandler, international Rothko expert, art critic and historian, discusses the work of Mark Rothko in a lecture on 22 April 2010 at 14h. Advance registration and reservation required.
