Chronicling the life and incredible career of American artist Mark Rothko, this intimate portrait collects comments from family members, friends, artists, art historians, collectors and curators to provide insight into the man and his masterpieces. Through his giant abstract paintings, Rothko hoped to move viewers to feel something akin to religious awe and evoke emotional responses to such basic human experiences as tragedy and ecstasy.
