    Recently, a sale of postwar and contemporary art at Christie’s New York generated a sum of $744 million, with many pieces selling substantially over their high estimate. Two Andy Warhol works sold for over $100 million, an incredible $30 million more than the high estimate; this included White Marilyn, 1962 a portrait completed shortly after the actresses death. Barnett Newman’s Black Fire I sold for $84.2 million, a record that almost doubled his previous best auction result.

    "Silence is so accurate."Mark Rothko 

    The artist was born Marcus Rothkowitz on this day in 1903, in Dvinsk. His family left Russia and settled in Portland, OR, in 1913. It was towards the late 1940s and 1950s, that he painted the works for which he is best known for: blocks of color in luminous washes that create large, contemplative forms on canvas.

    Rothko also spent several years concentrating on works for a chapel in Houston, reinforcing his unwavering belief in the spiritual and emotional qualities of Abstract Art. In 1970, Rothko, who suffered from depression, took his own life.

    Rothko’s No 14 is on view at SFMOMA.

  8. Rothko Family Reacts

    Following the horrible vandalism of one of Mark Rothko's iconic Seagram paintings, the artist's children, Kate Rothko Prizel and Christopher Rothko, responded with this statement: 

    "The Rothko family is greatly troubled by yesterday’s occurrence but has full confidence that the Tate Gallery will do all in its power to remedy the situation. Our father donated his legendary Seagram paintings to the museum in 1969 sensing the commitment of the institution to his work and impressed by the warm embrace it had received from the British public. We are heartened to have felt that embrace again in the outpouring of distress and support that we and our father have received both directly and in public forums."

    The statement is distributed by the Pace Gallery, which has represented the Rothko estate for several years.
