Image coming soon.

A must read article: David Levine revisits the scandal and trial surrounding the Mark Rothko estate from a moving, personal perspective. Levine's father, Morton Levine was a close friend of Rothko and an executor of the estate along with painter Theodoros Stamos and accountant Bernard Reis.

Levine writes: "Black-and-white photos of cocktail parties; that was their scene… There's Mom hanging out with Rothko and Stamos in the living room; there's Mom smoking a cigarette in Rothko's studio; there's Rothko sitting on the edge of his bed. I grew up in a house full of photos of Rothko, and not a single photo of my dad. He's always out of the picture. He's always the one taking the picture."
