Mark Rothko was an abstract expressionist painter whose pieces very often include colored stripes.
A Russian immigrant to America, Rothko dropped out of Yale as a rejection of what he viewed as its elitist values. Nowadays nothing says elitist more than hanging a Rothko in your lobby.
Mark Rothko, Orange and Yellow, 1956
