American painter of Russian Jewish descent. Although Rothko himself refused to adhere to any art movement, he is generally identified as an Abstract Expressionist. With Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning, he is one of the most famous postwar American artists.
In August 2014 the Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev bought Rothko's No. 6 for 186 millions dollars, the highest amount ever paid for a work by American painter.
He commited suicide on 25 February 1970.
