Russian-American painter Mark Rothko was born 109 years ago today. Here is one of his works from our collection, ‘Untitled’, from 1955. Many critics wondered if the the darker colors Rothko was using in this and other paintings of the time were a reflection of the growing darkness in his life. What do you think?
