Photographers take photos at a Mark Rothko exhibition

Photographers eagerly take photos of a distant Mark Rothko painting prior to an auction of contemporary art at Sotheby's Bond Street in London, England. The date was April 18, 2007. By that point, Rothko had been dead for 37 years; born in 1903 in Russia, he died in 1970 in New York City.
