Mark Rothko: The Exhibitions at Pace
The highly anticipated monograph traces the arc of production of one of the most celebrated artists of the twentieth century, presented chronologically through eleven groundbreaking Rothko exhibitions organized by and held at Pace Gallery from 1978 through 2017. “Our relationship was close enough for me to step into the studio, on my way home, if the light was on in his doorway,” Glimcher recalls in his introduction to the book. He was introduced to Rothko at his studio, an old carriage house on East 69th Street, in the spring of 1966 by Louise Nevelson, another longtime gallery artist. What began as a thoughtful relationship with the artist—at the time working on his Menil Chapel paintings—transformed into something greater: a bond with Rothko’s children, who entrusted him with the responsibility of representing the Rothko estate, representing Rothko’s work for over four decades. These PACE exhibitions has allowed some of the most distinguished art historians to write on Rothko’s work for the accompanying catalogues. Mark Rothko: The Exhibitions at Pace brings this scholarship together in a single volume. The literature has become inextricable from the canon of Rothko’s work, and collectively forms an essential body of knowledge.
