Biography from the Archives of askART
In October 2004, a book titled The Artist's Reality: Philosophies of Art was published by Yale University Press. Edited by the artist's son, Christopher Rothko, who found the manuscript in 1988, it is the only published writing by the artist and is the result of tedious work by the son to create an organized manuscript from pages that were "sloppily typed, with numerous hand-marked additions and deletions" . . .
At the time of his father's death, Christopher Rothko was six years old, and editing the pages became a way of establishing a relationship with a father whom he could barely remember. "It was a fascinating process, In rediscovering the book, I rediscovered my father."
