Mark Rothko
Venice / New York: Museo d'Arte Moderna Ca'Pesaro / Marlborough Gallery, 1970. First Edition. Signed and inscribed by abstract expressionist, Theodoros Stamos, dated December 5, 1970, filling the entire half-title page with a decorative border drawn by Stamos, and reading: "For Alice, with all my thanks and best wishes, Stamos, Dec. 5/70." Stamos was one of the original group of abstract expressionist painters called the Irascibles, including Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock, and Willem de Kooning. Rothko chose Stamos to be one of his executors. Stamos entered into a conspiracy to defraud the Rothko estate. He was subsequently found guilty in court and his career as an artist was ruined. An illustrated catalogue issued to accompany an exhibition of paintings by Mark Rothko from the Venice Biennale in collaboration with Marlborough Galleries of New York. Paperbound. With 27 tipped-in color plates. Very good copy with some edge wear and use and a dampstain to the top edge and outer corner, affecting a few of the beginning pages, but none of the interior plates. With the original acetate jacket that has some tears and shallow chips. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
