I think I have spoken here before about my quest to understand the paintings of Mark Rothko. It started with me watching a DVD by Simon Schama who was swooning when he spoke of the power of Rothko's work. Since the paintings didn't move me much, I decided I needed to learn more about both the paintings and the artist. So, several years later, I have a better understanding of his work. I love this photograph because this woman at MoMA yesterday stood in front of the painting for a fairly long time, and I could identify with that. The name of this painting is: "No. 16, Red Brown Black."
