Catalogue Note

‘Rothko never abandoned bright colours in his works on paper, the late vibrant paintings on paper contain a force not experienced in earlier small works … these late creations, with their dense unmodulated surfaces, do not flicker with light; rather, they generate a strong, constant glow.’
