Abstract L.A.

Doug Harvey zeroes in on seven current abstract painting shows in the LAWeekly, including:
Rothko at MOCA: as Harvey points out, the show's subdued lighting brings out Rothko's palette in an unusual, rich way.
A side-by-side exhibit of works by German painters Caspar and Richter at the Getty. Both are definitely worth a peek.
