Interior Design Addict: Via _roomonfire The Rothko Chapel is a holy place devoted to religion yet belonging to none. The tranquil interior serves not only as a non-denominational chapel, but also as a major work of modern art. On its octagonal walls are 14 massive paintings by American abstract expressionist Mark Rothko. Commissioned by art collectors and philanthropists John and Dominique de Menil, the Houston landmark opened in February 1971. Rothko always wanted to control the space in which his paintings hung. His wish was finally granted on this project. He was instrumental in both the actual design of the chapel itself and the precise placement of each painting. Rothko committed suicide in 1970, one year before the chapel opened. He was never able to see his work installed.
