Mark RothkoMark Rothko, one of the preeminent modern artists of his generation, said that the subject matter of his paintings was the extremes of human emotion. During a career that spanned five decades, Rothko (American, b. Russia, 1903–1970) developed an innovative form of abstract painting characterized by rigorous attention to formal elements such as color, shape, balance, depth, composition, and scale. His early stylistic experimentation distilled into the Abstract Expressionism of his mature work—large-scale paintings featuring rectangular shapes of saturated color and shimmering emotional presence. By the late 1940s, when the devastation of a global war had shunted creative impulses into radically new directions, Rothko was an established and influential leader among New York’s artistic avant-garde.
Loved puzzling this one out! Had to sort the black pieces into shapes which was part of the fun.
We knew the Rothko would be tough—and it was! We sailed through the bands of color—including yellow without any tears or trauma. But then the BLACK! That took about two weeks to do—and even then, we resorted to patching together a few pieces at a time.
We would probably not do a puzzle this difficult again.
Major kudos to you for completing this toughie!
