From January 10 through March 7 the museum's ticket office will relocate to Dorsoduro 708. As a result, the cloakroom service will be temporarily suspended. We apologize for the inconvenience.
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.
