The interplay of color and space

The paintings by Mark Rothko undoubtedly number among the truly breathtaking visual experiences offered by the Fondation Beyeler. With his large-format canvases, the artist has created wonderful color spaces in which all trace of anecdote and narrative has been suppressed. Rothko’s colors cast a complex spell upon the viewer. "I’m not interested in the relationship of color or form or anything else. I’m interested only in expressing basic human emotions – tragedy, ecstasy, doom and so on.” 

ANSICHTEN no. 5 takes an in-depth look at Marc Rothko’s works in the Fondation Beyeler. Detailed descriptions, technical data, special features, background information, and questions of interpretation all fall within the scope of this booklet.

The ANSICHTEN (‘VIEWS’) series has been created for art lovers and teachers. Packed with insights, the series allows you to explore the works in the Fondation Beyeler in greater depth. 

Each ANSICHTEN volume also contains a section specifically designed for art educators. This part of the book suggests ideas for practical exercises and experiments that can be performed in the museum, in the classroom or at home.

The ANSICHTEN series published by the Fondation Beyeler is an enjoyable and entertaining way of deepening your knowledge of a work of art.
