Christopher Rothko
Mark Rothko from the Inside Out” 
Drawing on his intimate knowledge and understanding, Christopher Rothko will discuss issues of interpretation and meaning in the work of his late father, the painter Mark Rothko. Based on the essays collected in his book, Mark Rothko: From the Inside Out, his talk will look closely at Rothko’s paintings and explore the ways in which they foster a profound connection between the artist and the viewer through form, color, and scale.
Christopher Rothko, a writer and psychologist, chairs the board of the Rothko Chapel in Houston and is actively involved in managing the Rothko legacy. His talk will be followed by a book-signing, and a reception at the Pollock-Krasner House.
There’s a feature story about the Historic Artists’ Homes and Studios program in the summer issue of Preservation magazine. HAHS recently received a $375,000 grant from the Henry Luce Foundation to fund a full-time administrator for the program, which comprises 36 member sites nationwide.
