"Orange and yellow"

Mark Rothko (Marcus Rothkowitz) - 1956

Orange and Yellow reflects Mark Rothko's mature style, in which two or three rectangles are set within a background that surrounds them all, but divides them gently from one another. The edges of the rectangles are never distinct, avoiding an optical break and allowing viewers' eyes to move quietly from other area to another in a contemplative way.
Orange and Yellow was considered quite large in the 1950s, and Rothko asked viewers to stand close in order to be visually surrounded by the colors. His goal was for color to, in his words, express . . . basic human emotions - tragedy, ecstasy, doom. . . . The people who weep before my pictures are having the same religious experience I had when I painted them. And if you, as you say, are moved only by their color relationships, then you miss the point.”
