A prominent figure among the New York School painters, Mark Rothko moved through many artistic styles until reaching his signature 1950s motif of soft, rectangular forms floating on a stained field of color. Heavily influenced by mythology and philosophy, he was insistent that his art was filled with content, and brimming with ideas. A fierce champion of social revolutionary thought, and the right to self-expression, Rothko also expounded his views in numerous essays and critical reviews.
The reason why I like Mark Rothko's art works is because, his artwork sort of bring out how one's inner self feels and thinks. Like when one looks at his art work in a distance(IT'S A MUST), with different music as background, one don't just see a painting with different color of rectangles but images in it, and different people see different images. The images one see would some way or another relate to how one is feeling or thinking at that point of time.
