Visited the Tate Modern in London, were i came across the Rothko Room. The paintings occupy a room of their own, which is low lit, with high ceilings and is filled with a brooding presence. Favorite thing in Tate Modern. Seconded by the works of Cy Twombly.

“A picture lives by companionship, expanding and quickening in the eyes of the sensitive observer. It dies by the same token. It is therefore a risky act to send it out into the world. How often it must be impaired by the eyes of the unfeeling and the cruelty of the impotent who would extend their infliction universally.” - Mark Rothko (1947)
