    i don’t really see why this is considered art , its just 3 rectangles.

    It just makes me think of that old story – “The Emperor’s New Clothes”.

  4. JoeFromCO Says:

    would it be wrong to laugh in front of such a painting?

  5. cauterful Says:

    at least Rothko expressed himself in a very clear way with talent and feeling. you can feel his emotion.

  6. xJezika Says:

    You obviously know nothing about art. Get out.

  7. ZeroFrillsMan Says:

    many people cry in front of a Rothko painting. me too 😉

  8. Audiofreund2 Says:

  9. TheTerminalExpress Says:

    Rothko mixed his own pigments.

    Every time i see his paintings i burst into floods of tears!

  13. Keith Peters Says:

    Layering stain over stain over stain doesn’t move me emotionally…. for some reason. I’ve seen his paintings in person, and I certainly didn’t cry.

  15. Max Ostrow Says:

    wow… whats weird is when i saw a rothko painting in real life.. i cried for minutes … people were staring at me ..ahaha

  16. kizu00 Says:

    i love rothkos paintings… it’s a pitty that they lose so much of their greatness in videos or prints. seeing them in reality is imo the only way to enjoy them. anyway thanks for explaining his painting techniques 🙂
