#MarkRothko sought to make paintings that would bring people to #tears. “I’m interested only in expressing basic human #emotions—tragedy, #ecstasy, #doom, and so on,” he declared. “And the fact that a lot of people break down and cry when confronted with my pictures shows that I can communicate those basic #humanemotions….If you…are moved only by their color relationships, then you miss the point.”1 Like his fellow #NewYork School #painters Barnett #Newman and #Clyfford Still, #Rothko#painted to plumb the depths of himself and the human condition. For him, art was a profound form of communication, and #art making was a #moral act.
