The intimate Rothko Room holds four paintings by abstract expressionist Mark Rothko, and reflects the artist's preference for exhibiting his art "in a scale of normal living. Duncan Phillips's empathetic response to Mark Rothko's paintings reveals the collector's understanding of the emotional impact of color. In 1957, Phillips held his first group exhibition that included the artist and purchased Green and Maroon (1953).

Rothko is often referred to as an Abstract Expressionist, but the artist himself saw his work differently. I am not an abstractionist, he famously said. I am not interested in the relationship of color or form or anything els. ’m interested only in expressing basic human emotions - tragedy, ecstasy, doom and so o. .The paintings in the Rothko Chapel, for example, are so dark as to appear almost entirely black. However, Rothko stated unequivocally that his paintings were not an expression of his own emotional state, but rather an attempt to connect his viewers with the sublime
Jonathan Jones: Rothko's apocalyptic, wine-red paintings of illusory windows or doors take viewers to disorientating depths of the imagination. The set of Mark Rothko paintings originally commissioned for the Four Seasons restaurant in New York are the treasure of Tate Modern. They occupy a room of their own, low-lit and filled with brooding intensity. The hazy outlines of what might be doors, windows, or the gates of heaven and hell hover on the wine red and imperial purple surfaces of Rothko's mural-scale abstractions.
