With Washington ready to deploy tanks and station troops in NATO border countries, and Moscow warning against escalation, how will this affect the ongoing war in Ukraine, and the region? Mark Rothko started as an emigre "outsider" from The Pale of Settlement but rose to become one of the 20th Century's most famous painters. Annie Cohen-Solal tells Rothko's story in her new book Mark Rothko:Toward the Light in the Chapel, tracing a strand of art history where New York muscled out Paris as the capital of Modern Art.
