NEW Art Book will include Mark Rothko
Les Fox (06/18/2011)
N.Y. Times bestselling authors Les and Sue Fox are doing research for a new book titled "The Art Buyers Handbook" to be published in 2011 or 2012. This book will feature stories of real people who bought valuable art at garage sales, flea markets, local auctions and estate sales. Did you know that a masterpiece by Joseph Decker ("Ripening Pears") was bought at a garage sale in 2001 for $5, and sold to the National Gallery Of Art in 2004...for $1,000,000? If you or someone you know has purchased a genuine painting by Mark Rothko for a fraction of its AskArt value, we would like to publish your story in our book. Your name will be kept confidential, unless you want us to publish it. The facts must be verified, and we will need photos of your painting (original oil or watercolor, not a print, lithograph or limited edition.) Thank you. Les Fox. West Highland Publishing / West Highland Art Auction Brokers.

Mark Rothko
vito giallo (06/11/2011)
When I was an antiques dealer in the late 1950's on 3 Ave and 94th St. Mr. Rothko was a customer of mine. One day when delivering a purchase to his townhouse around the corner from my shop I had the rare privilige of seeing a long row of his paintings in the living room. As he loved talking about his art he said to me,"Vito you see all the oriental rugs on the floor? That is where my inspiration comes from". And indeed I could see it! The browns and oranges, the reds in the rugs with their blured edges,one could see a similarity.Especially by viewing a small one or two inch square and blowing that up in yor mind ,it becomes a Rothko painting.

Hello--I believe my father, Morris Rothkow, was Mark Rothko's cousin. I am just starting on this family's geneology and have had some roadblocks, also. I would love to hear from you. Thank you. SS

He lived with my grandparents, Abraham and Esther Weinstein,and their daughter Sylvia while he was at Yale. My grandmother Esther was his father's sister. My father, Louis Weinstein, was the young son in the household. He and my mother Lottie had lunch with Mark(Louis' first cousin) in New York not long before he died. My parents spoke fondly of their famous relative. I would love to know of other relatives connected to this family, and have tried to trace some roots in what was Dvinsk. Even the name Rothkowitz brings no results. Any info on other siblings of Mark and Esther(if any) would be greatly appreciated!
