MARK ROTHKO and WILLIAM SCOTT
Continuing the Dialogue
8.5" x 11" softcover catalog; 50+ pages
April 26 - June 3, 2023
Anita Rogers Gallery is thrilled to present Mark Rothko and William Scott: Continuing the Dialogue, an exhibition of paintings and works on paper by two twentieth-century masters, offering new insight into their relationship and mutual admiration, influence, and respect. Large-scale works on canvas will be complemented by preparatory drawings, as well as correspondence between the two artists. Mark Rothko (1903-1970), one of the most prominent of the American abstract painters, and William Scott CBE, RA (1913-1989), a leader in the Modernist movement in the UK, met in 1953 and consequently grew close through letters and visits. By including the artists’ works and words together, the gallery hopes to share the story of this friendship with a wider public.
In conjunction with the exhibition, the gallery will publish a full-color catalog featuring an essay by David Anfam, art historian and author of the catalogue raisonné Mark Rothko: The Works on Canvas, as well as writer and curator of Abstract Expressionism (Royal Academy of Arts, London, 2016-17) - the largest survey of its kind ever held in Europe.
