Color Field Painting
Willem de Kooning
- Those who knew Rothko described him as fractious, hard-drinking, of unhealthy habits and often just plain unhappy.
- As if giving the thumbs up to this description, Rothko himself told the art critic Harold Rosenberg, “I don’t express myself in my paintings; I express my not-self.”
- For a month in 1949, Rothko went to the Museum of Modern Art to stand in front of Matisse’s “The Red Studio.” His comment about it, referring to Matisse’s experience was, “You became that color, you became totally saturated with it.”
- Likewise, Rothko decided to surrender himself to the physical sensation of color to achieve his goal.
- 1949 was his formative year on developing the art prototype for the rest of his painting life. He added the Matisse immersive painting into his prototype.
- He needed to add size to color immersion, saying,“To paint a small picture is to place yourself outside your experience. However, you paint the large picture, you are in it.”
- His layers are ultra thin. A Rothko looked at under bright light will reveal seemingly hundreds of paintings on top of each other.
