Art on Sunday: Rothko, No. 5/No. 22

Mark Rothko (1903 – 1970)
No. 5/No. 22, 1950 (dated on verso 1949)
Oil on canvas
Rothko, No. 5/No. 22
The Museum of Modern Art, New York

catko is spending a month in New York, and a few days ago she visited the Museum of Modern Art, where she saw a bunch of works by Mark Rothko, whom she loves. But she didn't see this one, because it's not currently on view. Take that, MoMA! I have undermined your scheme to hide this work of art from the public!
