Mark Rothko was born Marcus Rothkowitz in 1903 in Dvinsk, Russia.  His father was a pharmacist.  As a child he spoke Hebrew and Russian until he was ten years old; in 1913 he and his two sisters, Anna and Sonia, came to Portland, Oregon, where their parents had preceded them.  They wore labels explaining that they did not speak English; he enrolled in Immigrant School. In 1921 he won a scholarship to Yale University; he was one of three immigrant seniors to get into Yale.&n (showing 500 of 8741 characters).
