Rothko: Untitled 1953 (Fuchsia/Orange), Poster

About the Artist

Mark Rothko (1903–1970), who was central to the development of postwar abstract painting in the United States, is best known for the luminous paintings he made in the 1950s and 1960s. These classic works are characterized by their soft-edged rectangular forms and broad, thin washes of color. The National Gallery of Art is the largest public repository of Rothko's works, with a collection that includes nearly 300 paintings on canvas and paper, and a study collection of more than 600 additional works on paper.

This poster is a reproduction of Mark Rothko's Untitled 1953, a large painting comprised of a plane of radiant fuchsia, a swath of black, and a small, ragged stripe of orange along the bottom edge. The blurred edges create a floating, dreamlike effect throughout the canvas and reveal an array of hidden colors.
