The Columbia Museum of Art has produced a full-color, 170-page catalogue entitled, Mark Rothko: The Decisive Decade 1940-1950. Edited by University of South Carolina professor Dr. Bradford R. Collins and published by Skira Rizzoli Publications, Inc., this catalogue features an essay by Mark Rothko's son, Christopher Rothko, and essays by three internationally noted Rothko scholars: David Anfam, Harry Cooper and Ruth Fine.
"This publication will be of great interest both to the serious student of art history who needs to understand how Rothko became Rothko, but also to the art lover who wants help in gaining a general understanding of a complex artist," CMA chief curator, Will South, said. "This book is thoroughly researched, skillfully written, and generously insightful. It is beautifully designed and a sensual pleasure to peruse."
The catalogue is available in hard cover ($50) and soft cover ($29.95) in the Museum Shop.
