Columbia Museum of Art’s Rothko exhibition in the NY Times

The Columbia Museum of Art’s exhibition, Mark Rothko: The Decisive Decade 1940-1950, is featured in the New York Times. Now on view at the Columbus Museum of Art in Ohio, the landmark exhibition brings to the fore 37 works of art, including paintings, watercolors, drawings and prints, largely drawn from the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Art, Washington and exhibited for the first time in two decades.

The exhibition was realized by the current chief curator Will South and developed by former Columbia Museum of Art chief curator Todd Herman. The museum’s partners in organizing the exhibition are the Arkansas Art Center, the Columbus Museum of Art and the Denver Art Museum, in conjunction with the National Gallery of Art, Washington.
