Rothkos Brushstroke Of Genius by Doug Hyde Rothkos Brushstroke of Genius - Mounted by Doug Hyde Rothkos Brushstroke of Genius - Framed by Doug Hyde

From a series of 4 paintings called the 'Masters,' from a very small edition run, so extra rare!

Doug's own words about the 'Masters' series

“15 years ago my wife Suzi and I visited Tate Modern. I have never before or since been struck by a painting the way I was that day when I walked into a large hall exhibiting Mark Rothko’s work. The impact was so great that when I left that room my outlook on art changed forever. It is easy to mock artwork, and for somebody to say “Anyone could do it”.

But somebody has to do it to show the world that it can be done. To me all of these artists have done this; they have produced something incredibly appealing, thought provoking and simply stunning to look at. The ideas may seem simple but they are their ideas, new and original and unlike anyone else’s.

Each of them has created something incredibly appealing, thought provoking and simply stunning to look at. I hope that you can join with me in celebrating the artists who have inspired me and enjoy my homage to their creations.”

Doug's own words about this print:

“Rothko has had such a profound influence on me. The two pieces I saw that day in London turned my view of art upside down. The purity of the composition, the bold, broad brushstrokes, the beauty and effectiveness of the colours - I left the gallery thinking “no more detail”.

I think about those paintings a lot, and they remind me that I want to achieve that power through simplicity; this is what I love - capturing an idea, a message, a view, an expression or a character as simply as possible.”
