Mark Rothko: Subjects

This exhibition of two dozen works drew attention to formal connections between Rothko’s figurative subjects of the 1930s, surrealist works of the mid-1940s, and abstract paintings of the 1950s and early 1960s. With several exceptions, the works were drawn from the collection of the Mark Rothko Foundation. Mark Rothko: Subjects was one of the first exhibitions to be presented in the High Museum of Art’s new building designed by architect Richard Meier (1983).
