New Rothko Discovery

My New Rothko

Untitled, Red, 1968, Peggy Guggenheim Collection

This might be the most disturbing painting I’ve ever seen and I can’t take my eyes off it. From what I gather, Rothko first painted the red series. It was all the passion and fury that red evokes. Before taking his own life, was the black; the eternal void. This was painted after the red, before the black.
