Abstract
Mark Rothko’s Seagram murals in the Tate gallery and his suicide are well-known, but his illustrations are not. As a struggling artist in New York during the 1920s, he was commissioned to produce artwork for The Graphic Bible by Lewis Browne, a task that proved to be problematic on several levels. This essay examines the toll that this experience took on Rothko, and how it may have influenced his later career.
