Tate Modern to host Rothko Exhibition

Published: Thursday 25th of September 2008

One of the most famous London galleries – the Tate Modern – is set to host an exclusive exhibition comprising the work of expressionist artist Mark Rothko.

Opening on September 26th, the exhibition will feature 50 of Rothko's later paintings, including the famous Seagram Murals.

In a statement the Tate Modern described his work as "iconic" and claimed that his paintings were among the most "enduring and mysterious" created by a modern artist.

"In the exhibition his paintings glow meditatively from the walls in deep dark reds, oranges, maroons, browns, blacks and greys," the London gallery said.

Born in Latvia, Rothko emigrated to the US as a child, establishing himself as one of the greatest expressionist painters of the 20th century, before taking his own life in 1970.

An art-lovers paradise, London is home to dozens of art houses including the National Portrait Gallery, Serpentine Gallery and the Courtauld Galleries.
