Rothko Family Reacts
Following the horrible vandalism of one of Mark Rothko’s iconic Seagram paintings, the artist’s children, Kate Rothko Prizel and Christopher Rothko, responded with this statement:
“The Rothko family is greatly troubled by yesterday’s occurrence but has full confidence that the Tate Gallery will do all in its power to remedy the situation. Our father donated his legendary Seagram paintings to the museum in 1969 sensing the commitment of the institution to his work and impressed by the warm embrace it had received from the British public. We are heartened to have felt that embrace again in the outpouring of distress and support that we and our father have received both directly and in public forums.”
The statement is distributed by the Pace Gallery, which has represented the Rothko estate for several years.
