More Rothko’s Entrance To Subway
Unlike most of Mark Rothko’s paintings that focused mainly on colors and their compatability with each other, Entrance to Subway portrays an everyday life scene.
The painting displays a busy subway that almost comes to haunt you with its expressions.
An example of the depression-era, Entrance to Subway pictures monotonous people walking down the staircase with an equally daunting background.
It was the era of poverty and unemloyement which is intricately captured in the painting.
There is something about the painting that makes it appear lonely and estranged.
The characters in the painting look disinterested and the lack of eye contant almost makes them appear isolated.
A sense of helplessness and claustrophobia makes the painting look crowded even with 3 subjects in it.
Entrance To Subway reflects discomfort and certain amount of urban loneliness.
It was a very common subject matter especially during the early nineteens as it was considered years of depression.
Even if this painting was a more subject oriented artwork, Rothko still makes use of free brushworks. The characters look flat with little or no detail.
This was done to mainly transmit pure emotions by getting rid of the depth.
All in all the painting was to mirror the situation of the society during then America.
And although the painting may have been made in the early 1900s, it still hold as much significance in today’s world.
