Mark Rothko was born in Russia in 1903, and emigrated to the United States as a child. He studied at Yale University and the Art Students League in New York. He was a founder of the Expressionist group "The Ten" in 1935. He continued to work and exhibit until his death by suicide in 1970. His work has been shown in solo exhibitions both during and after his life at major public institutions throughout the United States, and is in most major collections of modern art.
