The image I have always had of Rothko is that portrayed in many photos where he is pensively smoking whilst looking at his paintings: One brushstroke followed by twenty minutes looking and thinking… but this picture shows him being physical and practical, struggling with the day to day reality of being an artist.

La imagen que siempre he tenido de Rothko es la que se refleja en muchas fotografías donde fuma reflexivamente mientras mira sus pinturas: una pincelada seguida de veinte minutos de mirar y pensar…  pero esta imagen le muestra siendo práctico y físico, luchando con el día a día de ser artista.
