From the late 1940s Rothko began painting pure abstraction, contributing to the development of Color Field painting, marked by vast non-centered expanses of color. In Untitled (Red) the saturated fields of black and red, floating in rectangular shapes, are dominant entities. Through these two-dimensional color-rich fields, Rothko translated universal spiritual states, alluding primarily to the tragedy of the human condition.
