About The Work

The work was made by cutting up Emin's old baby blanket and stitching it with yellow thread to match the very color combination of the Mark Rothko painting at the Tate that moved her to tears - with a label reading: FOR PRIVATE VIEWS AND OTHER STATE OCCASIONS. And that takes us now to the present work. Flash forward seven years to 2010, when Emin, now far more famous than her collaboratrice, was invited to do a pop-up shop-in-shop at Selfridge's department store in London, she made new Rothko Comfort Blankets, without Lucas's name, and with a slightly different tag, in an edition of only 100 - each hand signed and numbered exclusively by Emin Well, they sold out immediately, and are now considered highly desirable and elusive collectors items.
