Mark Rothko, Green and Maroon, 1953.
"What we recall are not memories but old emotions disturbed or resolved—some sense of well being suddenly shadowed by a cloud—yellow ochres strangely suffused with a drift of gray prevailing over an ambience of rose or the fire diminishing into a glow of embers, or the light when the night descends."
- Duncan Phillips description of Rothkos paintings.
