MOCA | Mark Rothko

Los Angeles, CA - The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA), is showcasing its premier collection of paintings by one of America’s iconic Abstract Expressionist painters in MOCA’S Mark Rothkos. Curated by MOCA Chief Curator Paul Schimmel, MOCA’s Mark Rothkos brings together 8 out of 10 major Rothko paintings from MOCA’s collection in an intimate installation on view November 5, 2006–January 21, 2007 at MOCA Pacific Design Center. This grouping of magnificent paintings in the artist’s mature style—described as seeming to “glow mysteriously from within”—were acquired through gifts by Rita Schreiber in memory of her husband Taft Schreiber, and the Rothko Foundation, as well as the purchase of the famous Panza Collection in 1984 that formed the foundation of the museum’s assemblage of postwar art unparalleled on the West Coast.
