Pace exhibits rarely seen paintings on paper from the final years of Mark Rothko’s life

Pace inaugurated its new London gallery with Mark Rothko 1968: Clearing Away, an exhibition of rarely seen paintings on paper from the final years of Mark Rothko’s life. On view October 8 – November 13 at 5 Hanover Square, this landmark exhibition is the first in the United Kingdom that is solely dedicated to the artist’s extraordinary paper-based practice.

Mark Rothko 1968: Clearing Away brings together key paintings from Rothko’s renowned body of work made in the late 1960s—a significant and prolific period in the artist’s life. In the wake of a particularly difficult bout of ill health and a tumultuous time in his personal life, Rothko was forced to reduce the scale of his practice
