Stored in a New York City warehouse since the artist s death more than thirty years ago, this extraordinary manuscript, titled The Artist s Reality. Probably written around 1940-41, this revelatory book discusses Rothko’s ideas on the modern art world, art history, myth, beauty, the challenges of being an artist in society, the true nature of American art, and much more. The Artist s Reality also includes an introduction by Christopher Rothko, the artist s son, who describes the discovery of the manuscript and the complicated and fascinating process of bringing the manuscript to publication. The introduction is illustrated with a small selection of relevant examples of the artist s own work as well as with reproductions of pages from the actual manuscript.
