"This light pink and blue painting of Rothko is interpreted as an influence by the minimalist, reductive- movement in art and architecture, as a reaction to Abstract Expressionism, which was gaining momentum in the 70′s. Yet, for Rothko art surely meant to be experienced in conjunction with suggestive and vivid pictorials in its very expressive details such as color, form and balance."
