The Macklowe Collection: Lisa Dennison on Rothko's Untitled, 1960

New York | 16 May

In this video, join Sotheby's Chairman Lisa Dennison in an exploration of Mark Rothko's Untitled 1960, to be offered as a highlight of The Macklowe Collection May 2022. Powerfully emotive in palette and utterly enveloping in scale, Mark Rothko’s Untitled from 1960 is a masterwork of the legendary artist’s inimitable painterly praxis. Further distinguished by its remarkable provenance, Untitled has never before been publicly exhibited, having remained in The Macklowe Collection for nearly forty years. One of just 19 paintings on canvas by Rothko from 1960—nearly half of which reside in museum collections—the meditative hues and encompassing scale of the present work represent a pivotal moment within Rothko’s storied career and artistic development.
