Mark Rothko foi um pintor norte-americano de origem letã e judaica. Imigrou com sua família de Dvinsk para os Estados Unidos em 1913, quando ele tinha dez anos. Ele é classificado como um expressionista abstrato, embora ele tenha rejeitado esse rótulo. Resistiu aceitar, também, a classificação de "pintor abstrato". Tal como Jackson Pollock e Willem de Kooning, Rothko é um dos mais famosos pintores americanos do período pós-guerra.

Citações Mark Rothko

„I'm not an abstractionist. I'm not interested in the relationship of color or form or anything else. I'm interested only in expressing basic human emotions: tragedy, ecstasy, doom, and so on.“

— Mark Rothko
Context: I am not an abstractionist... I am not interested in the relationships of color or form or anything else... I'm interested only in expressing basic human emotions — tragedy, ecstasy, doom and so on — and the fact that a lot of people break down and cry when confronted with my pictures show that I communicate those basic human emotions... The people who weep before my pictures are having the same religious experience I had when I painted them. And if you, as you say, are moved only by their color relationships, then you miss the point!

„I do not believe that there was ever a question of being abstract or representational. It is really a matter of ending this silence and solitude, of breathing, and stretching one's arms again transcendental experiences became possible.“
