Confusion over two different books?,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mark Rothko (Hardcover)This 204 page book by Marjorie B. Cohn and published by Hatje Cantz in 2005 is as illustrated at the top of the page. However if you highlight the softback options you will see that a different book is shown - a 376 page work by Jeffrey Weiss for Yale University Press, which seems first to have been published in 1998 - check the full softback entry for this at no.5 on the Mark Rothko listings.
The reader's reviews on both books are virtually identical and since they date back to 1998/1999, it seems a fair assumption that they refer to the Weiss book and should not therefore be confused with this later work.
Certainly having just taken delivery of the Cohn book, I would strongly disagree with anyone who criticised the quality of the colour reproductions as they are quite superb. Overall it's a very fine book with a generous helping of Rothko's pictures in colour and some useful commentary.The large format is especially welcome as with Rothko, obviously it's a case of the bigger the better. Excellent value for money.
