Mark Rothko (25 September, 1903 – 25 February, 1970) was a famous American artist who was born in Russia but later moved to Portland where his father had earlier settled to work for his uncle. It wasn't long after they settled in Portland that their father passed on, forcing him and his siblings to go into employment to support the family. Rothko performed excellently in most of his subjects in high school, also displaying his love for literature and music. While in college, he did some sketches as well. His fascination with art sparked when he entered an art class during the time he was in New York for his studies. In 1924, determined to enhance his artistic skills, he enrolled at the Art Students League where he took anatomy training. Rothko developed interest in theater after working with a theater company during a break he had taken from school to visit his parents in Portland. He later tried his best to earn a scholarship to join the American Laboratory Theater in New York, but failed. Rothko’s love of theater would later feature in his art, going as far as forming part of his subjects. He continued creating art and worked together with other artists, including Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning, building a name for themselves as abstract expressionists. His works were mainly characterized with the application of luminous colors of rectangular shapes that overlapped on one another. They were mainly created in a manner meant to evoke viewers’ emotions. In 1943, together with several other artists, they penned their artistic beliefs and formed a team of Abstract Expressionists. Even though his art didn’t capture real world objects, they remained emotionally expressive. Framed Mark Rothko art remain some of the most sought after impressionist artwork. Some of his original works are also displayed by both public and private collections.
