This drawing relates to an oil painting from the same period that was exhibited as Seated Figure in early 1943 at the Riverside Museum, New York (fig. 1). The drawing is marked with paint splatters, suggesting that it may have been nearby when Rothko painted the canvas.
Mark Rothko: Works on Paper will ultimately document approximately 2,600 works from public and private collections worldwide. Cataloging is ongoing, and works and information will be added to the site during the coming years.
