The Phillips Collection is a small museum in Washington D.C.  According to the about page on the museums website it, “Paintings by Renoir and Rothko, Bonnard and O’Keeffe, van Gogh and Diebenkorn are among the many stunning impressionist and modern works that fill the museum’s distinctive building, which combines extensive new galleries with the family home of its founder, Duncan Phillips.”
The Museum also houses a Rothko Room so now there is no need to travel all the way to Tate in London to view some of Rothko’s paintings in an intimate setting.
“Created in 1960 by Duncan Phillips, the chapel-like Rothko Room was relocated within the museum in 2006, but remains essentially unchanged in scale and character. The room, which holds four paintings by Mark Rothko, is relatively small, reflecting Rothko’s preference for exhibiting his art “in a scale of normal living.” Rothko himself took a close interest in the room, which inspired similar Rothko installations elsewhere. On one visit in 1961 when Duncan Phillips was away, he asked the museum staff to make several small adjustments to the space. Phillips immediately noticed—and reversed—the changes when he returned. He did agree, however, to limit the seating in the room to a single bench, a decision that is still honored today”
