Restoring Rothko

"Filmed over 18 months, this is the story behind the restoration of Mark Rothko's 'Black on Maroon'."

And then: Rothko's original conception for the work became increasingly sombre. He later said, "After I had been at work for some time I realised that I was much influenced subconsciously by Michelangelo's walls in the staircase room of the Medicean Library in Florence. He achieved just the kind of feeling I'm after ..."

In the abstract: "Tate Modern's Rothko: five other artworks that could be improved."
