Mark Rothko - Black Over Reds (black on red)

From the late 1940s until death, Rothko created abstract paintings characterized by hovering rectangular form. Black over reds is marked by the use of dark coloration and contrasts. I find this painting interesting because it reminds me of both a window, a door, and a garage at the same time. It gives the notion of depth and three dimensional visuals.
