Artist: Mark Rothko (Latvian/American, 1903-1970).
Title: "Untitled (Orange)".
Medium: Oil on paper.
Date: Composed 1949.
Dimensions: Overall size: 25 3/8 x 18 1/2 in. (645 x 470 mm).
Lot Note(s): Signed and dated, verso. Good condition; the work has been water stained verso, primarily at the edges of the sheet and the upper right area, which in some instances telegraphs through to the recto; surprisingly it little detracts from the image and remarkably the work does not exhibit any foxing. While there is scattered paint staining verso, there are no glue remnants, tape remnants, tears, holes, creases, or folds. Comment(s): Rothko, of Jewish descent, was born Markus Yakovlevich Rotkovich in Dvinsk, Vitebsk Governorate, in the Russian Empire (today Daugavpils in Latvia). Although Rothko himself refused to adhere to any particular art movement he is generally identified as an Abstract Expressionist, and with Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning is one of the most famous postwar American artists.
