Looking For Violet, Green And Red
Mark Rothko

Against my better judgement and everything I hold dear about art, and certainly in violation of my political philosophy and my desire for the future of our society, I sort of like this piece. It's not great art, and I would certainly take seriously the notion that it isn't art at all, but rather, interesting graphic design. But it is more pleasing than any other piece I have seen by him.

I mean, meh, it's no Rothko, but still...

And a comment from a Moron (ette?) who prefers to remain anonymous...

What is it supposed to be? Looks like a window looking out at a stream with rocks. Painted by my 5-year-old.
