Mark Rothko (1903 - 1970) 

Mark Rothko was born in Russia where his early childhood was plagued by the environment where Jews were blamed for many of the evils that befell Russia. His father moved the family to the US (Portland, Oregon) in 1913, and Markus excelled academically, earning a scholarship to Yale. He left after his sophomore year, and in 1923 began his life as a painter. Rothko's work matured from representation and mythological subjects into rectangular fields of color and light. These later transcendent “multiform” constructs would become his enduring signature style. (abstracted from Wikipedia)

It is a widely accepted notion among painters that it does not matter what one paints as long as it is well painted. This is the essence of academicism. There is no such thing as good painting about nothing.” Mark Rothko
