Mark Rothko

"It was with the utmost reluctance that I found the figure could not serve my purposes. But a time came when none of us could use the figure without mutilating it."

In his last public statement about his art, he indidcated a painting should have "a sense of romantizism, tragedy, and clear pre-occupation with death." (Rothko Rooms)
