  Writings on Art: Mark Rothko

There is a new Mark Rothko book entitled Writings on Art, which is a companion book to the bestselling Artist's Realities: Philosophies of Art. Rothko's personal writings have only recently come to light after his son's discovery of these documents. These books contradict earlier impressions that Rothko was an artist who had renounced the written word. They also highlight the importance of meditation and spirituality to Rothko as well as his personal relationships with the giants of Abstract Expressionism, most notably Barnett Newman, Clyfford Still and Robert Motherwell. Writings on Art gathers both published and unpublished written works. Writings on Art and Artist's Realities both retail for $25.00 and are available through the Menil Bookstore and Yale University Press. And as always, the Rothko Chapel is located one block east of the Menil Collection.

Schirmer-Mosel has finally shipped the three volumes of Cy Twombly's Catalogue Raisonné V.1-4 of the paintings that I had on back order. The set still retails for $980.00. Volume 2 was reprinted to satisfy the shortages left in the remaining sets and once these run out, it is unlikely they will be reprinted. Because of this condition, I can only sell the full sets.
The Menil Collection Bookstore features the best books about modern and contemporary art, modern and contemporary architecture, design, and pop culture. We are located opposite The Menil Collection on Sul Ross Street in the heart of Montrose, Houston's arts district. For more information about the museum, please visit The Menil Collection online. Contact us at or by phone, 713-535-3180.
