Brown, Orange, Blue on Maroon is an artwork inspired by the painting with the same title by Mark Rothko. Rothko is one of the most successful artists from the US, and among the 20th-century painters, his work is one that is instantly recognizable because of its unique approach. Rothko's curve of progress as an artist was a long one, and from stylized figures in urban settings, passing through Surrealist-influenced pieces, Rothko arrived at his visual trademark. Brown, Orange, Blue on Maroon, today part of the Cincinnati Art Museum, is a picture from the 60s, one of the painter's most impressive phases.
The Rothko family came from the actual region of Latvia, at the time an area of the Russian Empire. Facing hardship after arriving, since Rothko's father died, he adapted himself fastly to the educational system. At that time, Rothko knew both Hebrew and Russian and had a theological-based education. He won a Yale scholarship but fell out of admiration for the university's environment. Eventually, the painter moved to New York, where he took an interest in art classes. There, Cubist painter Max Weber and the Armenian painter Arshile Gorky were his teachers at different institutions.
During his early years in New York, Milton Avery represented another pivotal figure for the artist's path. Avery met Rothko in 1928 and encouraged him to pursue a painting career. Around the artist, a colony of artists was formed, and they frequently painted together, exchanging advice and insight on art. This group also had the participation of Adolph Gottlieb and Barnett Newman, and in 1935 the famous group The Ten was formed. The collaboration began with the intent of exhibiting in many places and also held theory-based meetings. While the group was gaining more influence and visibility, many of the artists worked in the Worker Progress Administration, where their creative projects were funded by the government. Rothko also held a position as a teacher in the Brooklyn Jewish Center's School Academy until 1952. As his teaching career progressed, Rothko's painting also underwent many changes, arriving at its distinctive manner that it has today.
