What do you see or feel when you look at a Mark Rothko painting? The answer varies widely with each of us. (We happen know at least two people who profess to register pure emotion when they study a Rothko.) It's an interesting takeaway, for sure, especially when the prevailing aesthetic most often associated with abstract expressionists like Rothko is a cool, detached, cerebral one. Arrive at your own impressions with Tragic and Timeless: The Art of Mark Rothko, the new exhibit in Gallery 251 of the Saint Louis Art Museum in Forest Park (314-721-0072 or www.slam.org). The show comprises a group of eight of the modern master's paintings and works on paper, culled from both SLAM's permanent collection and the Beyeler Foundation in Switzerland. It remains up through Sunday, September 14, and the museum is open Tuesday through Sunday.
