365 Days of Art: September 25 – Mark Rothko is Born
September 25, 1903
Mark Rothko (originally Marcus Yakovlevich Rothkowitz) is born in Dvinsk, Russia (now Daugavpils, Latvia).
One of the best artist biographies is Mark Rothko: A Biography by James E. B. Breslin, who does a great job with a difficult artist and personality. I recommend it! And for my money, the multi-form paintings are enchanting.
