The Rothko Chapel
Letter of Recommendation By JACQUI SHINE  New York Times AUG. 23, 2017
I've been to the Rothko Chapel. I'd spent many hours at the Twombly Gallery before I went and I wasn't impressed. I usually am moved by Rothko. I hated the building and was disturbed by the number of people who were there - maybe 25 or so. I went back to the Twombly... But Shine's essay ensures that next time I am in Houston I will revisit the Chapel, and give it the respect it is due. Still, I go to Houston for the Twombly, which requires an entirely different sensibility.
