With its electric colors and sophisticated composition Mark Rothko's 'Untitled (Red, Blue, Orange)', 1955 is a testament to the artist’s successfully realized desire to find a new, non-representational language with which to express the most basic and profound of human experiences. The work's luminescence appears to stem forth not from the surface of the canvas but from some other, mystical space deep within its very fibers. August Uribe and David Georgiades, Worldwide Co-Heads of Contemporary Art discuss Rothko’s masterwork, an example of one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century working at the height of his painterly powers.
