A Jewish-émigré to the United States fleeing the oppression of tsarist Russia, Mark Rothko was among the earliest avant-garde of abstract expressionism, as much as he disliked this label. Inspired by the intimate connection between painter and spectator, Rothko’s ‘multiform’ works intentionally illicit the range of human emotions.
The No. 36 Orange & Purple Ketubah captures the depth of feeling as if the painter had sketched it himself. The warm orange, yellow, and red hues are carefully balanced by the plum inset recalling the ecstasy, joy, and love of lifelong relationships. We love this Ketubah because it represents everything a meaningful partnership should be—and we’d love it on our wall!
