Kinder & 1st Grade Rothko’s

Written by Tiffany Emerick. Posted in ES Art, Kindergarten Art

Mark Rothko is a Russian-American Abstract Expressionist who is best known for his ‘color field’ paintings.  He felt that traditional methods of showing emotion in art were outdated, eventually settling on the idea that large, simple areas of color worked best.  His later works show only two, three or four rectangles lined up one on top of another vertically on a huge scale, choosing colors that conveyed his emotions and inviting the viewer to get lost in his paintings.
