Rothko Lectures at Tate Modern

Last night was the last of six evenings spent discussing Rothko with Simon Morley at Tate Modern, along with twenty of so other keen followers of the great artist. Simon led us through a wide range of viewpoints from which to look and study Rothko and every week brought new insights. What more could you ask for but to immerse yourself in the subject while being surrounded by the rich and glorious Seagram Murals; monumental in size but warm enriching, enticing and certainly thought provoking. Thanks Simon, it was a wonderful journey of discovery. This one is called Untitled 1958 and ususally resides in Japan at the Kawamura Museum of Art; Smouldering Embers would have been my choice of title!
