Rothko Untitled 1969 from google images.
"In these new last Rothkos, the artist forsakes the barrenness of the black paintings for a pastoral setting, restating the simple premises of his art and alluding to new possibilities that he did not have time to explore. Yet they are casual and unhurried, as if made by an aging artist who was simply curious to find out whether he still had his touch, and delighted to discover that he did.”
