🎨 Rothko’s Evolution: The Birth of the “Multiform” Paintings (1946-1948)

🖌️ Transcending Boundaries: In 1946, Mark Rothko embarked on a transformative artistic journey, giving birth to what would later be coined as the “multiform” paintings. A departure from his earlier surrealistic and myth-influenced works, these creations marked a profound shift towards pure abstraction.

🌌 Metamorphosis Unveiled: A glance through the catalogue raisonne reveals a gradual metamorphosis in Rothko’s style. From the surrealistic, myth-infused pieces of the early 1940s to the highly abstract, Clyfford Still-influenced forms of pure color, Rothko’s artistic evolution is evident. This period serves as a bridge, transitioning from surrealism to a groundbreaking form of abstraction.

🎨 The “Multiform” Revelation: Art critics coined the term “multiform” to describe Rothko’s innovative creations, even though Rothko himself never used the term. These paintings, exemplified by masterpieces like No. 18 (1948) and Untitled (1948), possess a unique identity. Rothko described them as having a more organic structure, self-contained units of human expression that transcend conventional landscape or figurative representation.

💡 Life Force in Color: Devoid of recognizable landscapes, human figures, or symbolic myth, these blurred blocks of various colors became vessels of life for Rothko. They emanated a “breath of life” that he found lacking in the figurative paintings of his contemporaries. Rothko’s pursuit of possibility led him away from tired mythological symbolism, revealing a newfound energy and vitality in his art.

🚀 Mature Signature Style: The “multiforms” became the crucible of Rothko’s mature, signature style. These paintings, pulsating with their own life force, showcased Rothko’s departure from conventional artistic norms. Unfortunately, Rothko’s exploration of this revolutionary style was cut short by his untimely death, leaving us with a glimpse of an artistic journey that could have unfolded even further.

🎨 Legacy Beyond Boundaries: Rothko’s “multiforms” stand as a testament to an artist’s relentless pursuit of new forms of expression. Explore the evolution of Rothko’s art, and witness the birth of a style that remains a pivotal chapter in the history of abstract expressionism.
