Product Description

Wood and glass-framed and double-matted Robert Rosenthal etching from 1978 titled “Cleopatra.” Framed size 11″x14.” Actual etching approximately 2″ square. Both frame and art are in excellent condition.

Robert “Rosey” Rosenthal is nationally known for his mythic-fantasy art and his unique figurative relief prints. His mythic-fantasy etchings combine his love of history, his drawing skills and his enjoyment of fantasy.

A recognized innovator and teacher of traditional intaglio and relief printmaking techniques he has lectured regularly for the Cal Poly Art Department, most San Luis Obispo County art organizations and Cuesta College. He has won awards from the California Mid-State Fair, Santa Barbara Printmakers, Décor Magazine, SLO Art Center and both Northern and Southern California Renaissance Pleasure Faires. In Granada, Spain, while Artist-in-Residence at the Fundación Rodriguez-Acosta, he reestablished their etching atelier and collaborated with many of the best printmakers of Southern Spain.

Locally he is a past director of the San Luis Obispo Art Center, a co-founder and past president of the Central Coast Printmakers, an association that has been the focal point for printmakers of the Central Coast since 1983. For over 4 years he was the outspoken, guiding force of the large, diverse artists’ cooperative, The San Luis Artists’ Gallery. His artistic skills were developed at Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, New York, and by 8 years as a Madison Avenue advertising art director, but it took the open, creative “follow your bliss” atmosphere of California to set him free to explore and nurture his own artistic visions.
