Where to See Rothko Paintings Near You

The Rothko Chapel in Houston, Texas.

This season on Great Performances comes Red which brings to life the passion of painter Mark Rothko in this six-time Tony-winning play dramatizing Rothko’s greatest challenge, creating the murals for New York’s iconic Four Seasons restaurant. The program stars Alfred Molina as Mark Rothko with Alfred Enoch as Rothko’s assistant. If you need more Rothko watch American MastersRothko: Pictures Must Be Miraculous. The film tells the story of the art world giant whose signature color fields helped define the Abstract Expressionist movement. His work has been celebrated for over 60 years now, and since his death in 1970 the value of his painting has continued to rise. Private collectors have paid millions of dollars to own these masterpieces.

Luckily for the rest of us, there’s a way to see Rothko’s thought-provoking work for less than millions of dollars. Rothko is one of American’s most celebrated painters, and a staple of museums across the world.
