Mark Rothko ~ "White Center" 1950 I like the use of warm and bright colors in this piece and i love the contrast of the white center with the black line above it to the rest of the painting.

Albert Irvin, artist - obituary

Albert Irvin, the painter, who has died aged 92, started out in the 1950s as a figurative artist of the kitchen sink school, but after discovering Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko at a famous Tate exhibition in 1956 he reinvented himself as an exponent of a dazzlingly vigorous abstract expressionism, becoming one of Britain’s most respected abstract artists.
