Now it can be told: As I reveal in tomorrow’s Wall Street Journal — online now — Crystal Bridges is the proud owner of a 1961 Rothko, No. 210/No. 211 (Orange). It should answer a few of the critics who complained that the museum’s postwar collection was weak (including me).
My little piece, an “Object of Beauty” on the Icons page, tells much of the story.
But I will be back with more details and more about the museum’s recent additions to its collection in the next day or so.
