About

Jim’s of Lambertville is proud to offer this artwork by: Complemented by a hand carved and modernist style gilt frame. Illustrated in "New Hope for American Art" by James Alterman and "Form Radiating: The Paintings of Charles Rosen" published by the James A. Michener Museum. Charles Rosen (1878 - 1950) Charles Rosen was born on April 28, 1878, in Reagantown, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. At age sixteen, he opened up a photography studio. However, he quickly lost interest when most of his clients only wanted post-mortem photos of deceased relatives. In 1898, he went to New York City to enter classes at the National Academy of Design, where he studied with Francis Coates Jones. Shortly after, Rosen enrolled at the New York School of Art where he studied with William Merritt Chase and Frank Vincent DuMond. During this time, Rosen became friendly with artists Robert Spencer and Rae Sloan Bredin. Soon all three would move to Bucks County. In 1903, Rosen married Mildred Holden and moved to the New Hope area, renting a place to live from William Lathrop at the Phillips Mill complex. A lasting friendship with Lathrop resulted. Like his contemporaries Redfield and Schofield, Rosen painted large plein-air canvases with thick impasto and bold brush strokes depicting the scenic Delaware River and surrounding landscape. Rosen was able to accurately portray the atmospheric mood of his subject, whether it is snow-covered vistas or the morning’s autumn haze. These impressionist works were regarded as masterpieces and won many awards, including two Hallgarten prizes from the National Academy of Design in 1910 and 1912, as well as the Altman prize and the Innes Gold Medal in 1916. Rosen also won a Silver Medal at the Panama-Pacific Exposition in San Francisco in 1915. By 1916, Rosen had determined that he was no longer satisfied with his Impressionist style. In the late 1910s, he began to paint in a cubist-realist style, abandoning impressionism. In 1918, he became an instructor at the Art Students League Summer School in Woodstock, New York. He moved permanently to Woodstock in 1920, where he became closely associated with George Bellows, Eugene Speicher, Henry Lee McFee, and Andrew Dasburg. By the 1920s, Rosen was creating paintings exclusively in the modernist style, mostly landscapes and industrial scenes, as well as the occasional still life. Beginning in 1922, Rosen conducted a painting school for several seasons with McFee and Dasburg. Charles Rosen died in Woodstock at the age of seventy-two. He exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (1926 Gold Medal), the Carnegie Institute (1914 prize), the Panama-Pacific Exposition in San Francisco, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the City Art Museum in St. Louis, the Salons of America, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among others.
