Biography:
Born in Dvinsk, Russia as Marcus Rothkovitch, he immigrated to the United States at the age of ten and shortened his name. Rothko studied at Yale University and the Art Student’s League in New York, also his style developed gradually over many years spent teaching for a living. His early works were Expressionist portraits and urban landscapes, followed by a Surrealist stage influenced by Arshille Gorky. Rothko began painting his famous color-field pieces in 1947. Although this work was a success, his personal life was tormented with depression and alcoholism, which ended with his suicide in 1970.
