This painting was part of a set commissioned for the Four Seasons Restaurant in the Seagram Building, New York, although Rothko later withdrew them. This picture was later included in a retrospective exhibition as 'Mural, Section 3' the opposite way up. To support this, on the back of the original MARK ROTHKO | 1959 is inscribed that way and the paint brush dribbles suggest that it should be hang in that direction. However, some arrows on the back point the other way which strongly indicates that Rothko later changed is mind and intended it to be hung the opposite way.
