Orange, Red, Yellow is one of the most expensive post-war painting made by an American born abstract artist Mark Rothko. It was executed in 1961. It is a Color Field painting.
In 2012, it was sold for $77.5 million in Christie’s auction house. It is now Mark Rothko’s most expensive painting supressing the previous record of $72.8 million set by White Center (Yellow, Pink and Lavender on Rose) by Mark Rothko.
The composition of the painting is revered by the critics for the perfective use of colors and composition to bring out a ‘sunset’ like coloring.
The huge price paid for the painting also marks the growing popularity of abstract arts in modern times.
