Diane Waldmans important historical and critical essay on this pioneer of abstract color painting offers an unparalleled examination of Rothkos entire life and artistic output, and the 260 illustrations include superb color reproductions as well as revealing documentary photographs.Waldman traces Rothkos life from his childhood as a Russian immigrant in New York and his student days at Yale to his crucial role in the development of the New York School of Abstract Expressionism. The progression of his work is sensitively analyzed as well, beginning with his early figurative studies all the way through the late canvases, in which Rothko achieved an expression of ultimate calm and transcendent spirituality.
