There’s been a variety of fun and whimsical art events lately, but every once in a while there’s a week of substantive works which we’ll be thinking back on for years to come.

In case you missed it, David Levine recently published an elegantly woven account of the havoc wreaked by Mark Rothko’s will. When Rothko died in 1968, he left nothing to his children; his appointed executors quickly sold or consigned nearly 800 paintings at a drastic discount to the Marlborough Gallery. The inevitable lawsuit filed by his daughter ended the careers of every one involved and has left a permanent scar on Marlborough.
