David Rosenthal (1876-1949) was a Cincinnati artist who was known as an American Impressionist. He studied at the Art Academy of Cincinnati with Frank Duveneck, Lewis Meakin, and Joseph Henry Sharp. After finishing, Rosenthal traveled to Munich to study with G. Flad and Azbe and exhibited at the Kuenstler Verein. He won a scholarship at the Belle Arts in Rome, became a member of the Cirelo Internationale, and continued his studies at the Academy of Milan in Florence. During his extended residence in Europe, Rosenthal moved from Munich to Rome. Upon returning home during the early 1900s to the 1920s, Rosenthal came into demand as a portrait painter. An article in 1905 Cincinnati newspaper shows a photograph of him painting in his studio, featuring his popularity with the elite of Cincinnati and Chicago. He continued exhibiting and selling his work, including a portrait of Ohio Governor Salmon P. Chase for the State Capital in Columbus. There are also several series of portrait etchings of prominent composers, presidents, and people distinguished in other fields. Rosenthal's etching of Franklin Roosevelt is found in the White House Collection. Other work can be found in the Chicago Institute of Art, the New York Public Library, among others. After this period, he concentrated primarily on etchings, mezzotints and aquatints and in 1939 he shared a studio with Max Pollak who was an etcher and printer of other artists in Cincinnati.
