Abstract: Rather than being simple studies of abstract color and form, Mark Rothko's color-field paintings are argued to evoke intense emotional experiences. An investigation into how light is visually perceived and subsequently conceptually and emotionally experienced reveals how planes of color become catalysts for an internal experience of the Sublime when encountered by a viewer.
