Rothko’s late paintings, galleries respond to the climate crisis and Nicolas Poussin

This week, as the Frieze art fairs open and the international art world descends on London, we talk about Mark Rothko’s late paintings, now on view at Pace’s new space in the British capital, with his son Christopher. He also reflects on Rothko’s Seagram Mural paintings, which are now back at Tate Britain, close to JMW Turner’s works, as Rothko had hoped when he gave them to the Tate. Louisa Buck talks to Heath Lowndes, managing director of the Gallery Climate Coalition (GCC), a charity founded by galleries across the world in response to the climate emergency—the GCC has a booth at the Frieze London fair. And, for this episode’s Work of the Week, Ben Luke visits Poussin and the Dance, a show at the National Gallery in London that travels to the Getty Center in Los Angeles next year. There, Francesca Whitlum-Cooper, the show’s curator, tells us about Poussin’s obsession with the Borghese Dancers, an ancient Roman bas-relief now in the Louvre, and how the French artist responded to it in his painting.
