Mark Rothko: 1968 Clearing Away
Published in conjunction with an exhibition of Mark Rothko’s rarely seen, intimately-sized paintings and works on paper at Pace’s new gallery in London’s Hanover Square. The book hones in on a lesser-known aspect of Rothko’s practice and his late-career achievements. It includes high-quality images of works in the inaugural London show; an introduction by the artist’s son, Christopher Rothko; an essay by Barbican Art Gallery Curator Eleanor Nairne; and a chronology of major exhibitions, commissions, and other events in Rothko’s life and career in the 1960s. Text in the publication is rendered in a custom typeface developed by Kellenberger–White.
