With Annie Cohen-Solal

Few painters invite contemplation like Mark Rothko, whose luminous canvases have an almost spiritual effect on many viewers. Born Marcus Yakovlevich Rothkowitz in czarist Russia, he was educated in Talmud Torah. His complex relationship with the Talmud, says bestselling biographer Annie Cohen-Solal (Sartre: A Life), greatly influenced his identity. Solal explores the aesthetic evolution that defined his work in Abstract Expressionism; the complexities between Rothko’s public success and private doubts; and how he carried Jewish values into his art.

"The people who weep before my pictures are having the same religious experience I had when I painted them."
– Mark Rothko
