#940 Reflecting on myself at “Rothko Room”

20160503_105603

“Kawamura museum” in Sakura city in Chiba

There is a museum called “Kawamura Memorial DIC Museum of Art” in Sakura-city in Chiba. I like this museum very much. Especially, I like Rembrandt’s picture and Mark Rothko’s pictures in the museum. And there is “Rothko Room”.

“Rothko Room”

This room is dark and has a chair. I always sit on the chair and look around his abstract arts. All the pictures’ background are dark reddish brown with some squares and rectangles on top.
At first, I felt gloomy looking at the picture but as time went on my eyes calm and began to reflect on myself while I was looking at the pictures.

He drew pictures for a restaurant but he didn’t like it

Rothko drew 30 pictures for a famous restaurant, called “The Four Seasons” in N.Y. late 1950’s. However he refused to set his pictures at the restaurant because he didn’t like the restaurant’s atmosphere when he visited it before its opening.
Therefore some of those pictures were lost and seven of them came to Japan. Some other pictures are in USA, England and somewhere in the world.
This story is very interesting to me.

Sometimes I just want to go to “Rothko Room” alone and look at his pictures quietly.

芸術方面にも強いnakoさん。
段々あなたがスーパーウーマンに見えてきました。
何でも挑戦し、何でもこなしちゃう。
憧れちゃうなぁ。
あなたの足元にも及びませんが、日々精進したいと思います。

芸術に興味はあるけど強くはないよ。子供の頃は絵を描くのが好きでした。
なぜなら内気な子だったからね笑〜。勉強や運動よりも美術の方ができた。
yokoさんは逆に活発で利発な子供時代だったでしょ。
幼少期の生態は大人になっても変わらない…ところもある。
