|Baby Rothko (first layer)|
Even with all that working against me... I am feeling it.
Interesting and gutsy fact about M.R., he turned down showing paintings he made for the Seagrams Building and returned the money. (I think it was $35,000.) Because he ate there with his wife and found out it was a fancy Four Seasons Restaurant, instead of a commissary for the workers!
He wanted his work enjoyed by everyman, not just the rich. What a luxury.
To be continued.
