This is a full-length biography of Mark Rothko, arguably one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. Drawing on exclusive access to his personal papers and over 100 interviews with artists, patrons and dealers, the author tells the story of a life in art: the personal costs and professional triumphs, the convergence of genius and ego, culture and commerce, that defined the New York art scene of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s - the world of Abstract Expressionism, of Pollock, Rothko, de Kooning and Kline.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Mr. Breslin's book is, in my opinion, the best life of an American painter that has yet been written. . . . A biographical classic. It is painstakingly researched, fluently written and unfailingly intelligent in tracing the tragic course of its subject's tormented character."--Hilton Kramer, New York Times Book Review

--Hilton Kramer "New York Times "

"Historically, [Mark Rothko] is a rich work that beautifully sets out the New York art scene of the '30s, '40s, and '50s, giving a palpable sense of this complex, conflicted artistic genius and monumental ego, his colleagues and his period."--Ed Gero, Chicago Reader

--Ed Gero "Chicago Reader "
