Mark Rothko (1903-1970) was a celebrated Abstract Expressionist best known for his large, iconic 'colour field' paintings with blocks of glowing colour. Rothko devised a unique method to achieve luminosity in his work by applying thin washes of oil paint. Obsessed by colour, Rothko carefully composed his paintings to evoke a variety of emotions in the viewer. His soft, rectangular forms seem to float gently on the canvas. Rothko made an impressive contribution to American art and is considered one the most significant artists of the 20th century.
We started out as a small screenprinter in a Brighton basement. Today we've grown to a factory and design studio in Newhaven. Headed by founder Gyr King, we have a simple ethos to bring inspiring, affordable art to everyone.
Love this print, which is now the featured highlight in my living room. The orange seems to change colour and become more yellow when the sun is shining. Just gorgeous.
I recently purchased this print as a birthday gift for my mother. Although I was anticipating excellent quality, King & McGaw's product far exceeded my expectations. The colours are beautiful and bright and the paper is clearly high-grade. In sum, I am delighted, especially as these prints are priced so reasonably, allowing us all to enjoy wonderful art in our homes that will be treasured. Thank you!
If the colour of this print is important to you do lots of research. I didn't do enough. The images on the retailer's website show this piece as being almost vivid yellow, like a gloriouse sunrise, when in fact it is more a burnt orange. Still looks great, but not what I had hoped.
