rothko seagram

Sandra me envia direto da Tate Gallery as imagens das sublimes pinturas de Rothko. Sobre elas escreveu Lori Zimmer em 2017:

The Four Seasons Restaurant is one of the swankiest places to have a meal in New York- so swanky that Mark Rothko (1903-1970) decided he didn’t want his paintings hung there.

Rothko’s Seagram Murals were commissioned by the Mies van der Rohe and Philip Johnson designed restaurant before it opened in 1959. Rothko being the spit fire he was, accepted the commission and vowed to create “something that will ruin the appetite of every son-of-a-bitch who ever eats in that room.” But in actuality, the painter was so disgusted by the pretentious air in the Four Seasons, that he decided to pull the paintings all together.

The pieces now hang at London’s Tate Gallery, Japan’s Kawamura Memorial Museum and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
