Rothko in Britain

Image coming soon.

Rebecca Wright reviews the exhibition Rothko in Britain at the Whitechapel Art Gallery, on view through February 26, 2012.

Wright notes that Abstract Expressionism holds a "pivotal position… in the canon of art history, as the turning point when 'art' migrated from Europe to America following the Second World War. By using a past exhibition as a case study (Rothko's first solo show held in 1961) Rothko in Britain manages to break down the 'Americanness' of Abstract Expressionism, revealing to us a fascinating dialogue established between artists on either side of the Atlantic."
