This painting was part of a collection originally commissioned for the Four Seasons Restaurant in the Seagram Building, New York, although Rothko later withdrew them on the grounds that they did not complement the setting. He later said that this set was inspired by Michelangelo’s dark murals in the Medicean Library in Florence which for him, created a feeling of entrapment, like being in a room with no doors or windows. This painting was gifted to the Tate in 1968.
