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.
These modern greeting cards feature Rothko's red-and-white multiform painting from the Gallery's collection. The inside greeting reads: "Wishing you peace and joy this Holiday Season."
