Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art unveiled its latest acquisition during the weekend, a Mark Rothko painting, No. 210/No. 211 (Orange). The work of the famed abstract expressionist, who came to this country from Russia in 1913 at age 9, will be featured in a temporary exhibition called “See the Light: The Luminist Tradition in American Art.” The painting, which has large rectangles of vivid color and has only been exhibited twice in public, will be moved to the museum’s permanent collection once the exhibition closes January 28.
