Frere Ubu (or Rothko Paints a Flower)

Whilst painting the Seagram murals Rothco becomes obsessed with his inability to paint a weed that has been growing in his studio

Tormented by his giant canvases, he turns them away, thus avoiding their mocking stares

Frustrated by what he sees as the weeds refusal to accede, Rothco stays up late into the night
