The Power of Art – Rothko

The Power of art series, hosted by Simon Schama (displayed below), are a series of visual arts documentaries on some key artists through the course of history. This particular series focuses on the work and life of the Modernist painter Mark Rothko. The documentary is broken up into four parts on YouTube (listed below), it follows Rothko’s life and work up until his untimely death, and also explores the everlasting impact that the artist and his work have had on artists and the art going public alike. I have watched this particular episode of the series several times and find it to be excellent, it always sparks something in my own creative practice. Hope you enjoy it.
