Mark Rothko - Paintings on Paper

Register

This exhibition will examine approximately 100 paintings on paper made throughout Rothko's career.

This exhibition marks the first major presentation of American artist Mark Rothko (1903–1970) in the Nordic countries. One of the most important artists of the twentieth century, Rothko was central to the development of post-war abstract art.

This exhibition will examine approximately 100 paintings on paper made throughout Rothko's career, from figurative works of the 1930s, to mythological and surrealist works of the 1940s, to works from the 1950s and 1960s painted in the artist’s signature format: soft-edged rectangular fields arranged against monochrome backgrounds. Centering these paintings on paper offers a new view of the development of Rothko’s oeuvre.  

The exhibition is organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington. The National Museum will be its only venue in Europe.
