Spent Friday afternoon at the AGO – Musee des Beaux-Arts de l’Ontario for our Francophone readers. Exhibition on Abstract Expressionists, Jack the Dripper Pollock, Mark Rothko, de Kooning, Newman and Krasner et al……just brilliant.

t was Rothko who stunned me the most. Always been a fan, but it was the docent’s description of his vision and his sensibility that caught my attention. His work appears simple on immediate viewing, but then as you continue to stare, you realize he is indeed “expressing the big emotions”, the picture and it’s tonality expresses an experience.
