The Art of Margot & Karin Rosenthal: Paintings, Prints, Collages & Photographs
MY FAVORITE PLACE, collage by Margot Rosenthal
Margot Rosenthal was born in Berlin, Germany, and studied art in Dresden before coming to the United States. In this country, she continued her education at the Hartford Art School, University of Hartford. Her paintings, prints and mixed media works have been exhibited in many New England one-person and juried group exhibitions, winning more than 40 awards along the way. In 1999, Margot was honored with a retrospective of her work at the Hartford Jewish Community Center, where she taught for thirty years. Primarily a painter, Margot has in recent years found collage to be the most appropriate way of expressing and communicating her love of nature and the world around her.
VORTEX, gelatin silver print by Karin Rosenthal

Karin Rosenthal, Margot’s daughter, was born in Hartford. She attended the Rochester Institute of Technology, Wellesley College, and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Her photographs are included in many museum, library, corporate, and private collections and have been published in a number of books. Her solo show this year at the Danforth Museum of Art in Framingham, MA, with its accompanying monograph are among her most recent accomplishments. Currently, Karin is preparing an exhibition of her work for the New England School of Photography and another to be shown at Harvard University’s Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts. Karin writes "My desire to photograph nudes was born of the water, of a passion for being in and meditating upon still waters."
