- (1903–70)US abstract painter. Born in Russia, Rothko came to the United States as a boy. In 1935 he was a founder member of the Expressionist group known as ‘The Ten’. The European surrealists who arrived after the advent of Hitler had a visible influence on his work. By 1948, Rothko had evolved his own pictorial style: great areas of translucent colour. His works can be found in leading museums, fourteen of them housed in the Rothko Chapel, Houston, Texas.
