Mark Rothko - View from the Rothko Chapel, 1971
The Rothko Chapel, founded by John and Dominique de Menil. In 1969, Mark Rothko was commissioned by John and Dominique to create a meditative space filled with his paintings. The space designed and filled with Rothko’s painting is considered a holy place, a place where all beliefs and religion can go to, belonging to none. The minimalist triptych paintings by Rothko can be used by guests to project there belief onto during prayers or meditations. The chapel became a center for international cultural, religious, and philosophical exchanges, for colloquia and performances. And it became a place of private prayer for individuals of all faiths
