ABOUT THE ARTIST Architect and printmaker, Louis Conrad Rosenberg (1890-1983) was born in Portland, Oregon. The recipient of a scholarship awarded by the Architectural Club of Portland, Rosenberg attended The Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Graduating in 1914, he was granted a traveling fellowship in architecture and after the war he traveled throughout England, Europe, the Near East, and Northern Africa, creating thousands of sketches. He began his first experiments in etching while studying at the American Academy in Rome, in 1921, and was given an exhibition there. His prints came to the attention of Muirhead Bone who looked him up during a visit to New York and suggested that he pursue etching more seriously. Soon after that meeting, Rosenberg entered the school of engraving at the Royal College of Art in London, making 20 distinguished plates in a year and launching his career as a printmaker. On his return to the United States, he took a teaching position in architectural design at the University of Oregon. Etching for the American Etchers Series, he was commissioned to render the existing sites, new structures, and demolitions of the Cleveland Railroad Terminal. In 1930 he undertook a similar commission for the Cincinnati Union Terminal that produced some of his finest work. In 1946 he joined the New York architectural firm of Sawyer and York and remained there until retiring. Widely respected for his impeccable drypoint technique, flawless composition, and sensitive architectural renderings, Rosenberg was the recipient of many medals and awards. He was an emeritus member of the American Institute of Design and senior fellow in the Royal Society of Painters, Etchers and Engravers. Rosenberg was also a member of the Brooklyn Society of Etchers, Chicago Society of Etchers, Philadelphia Society of Etchers and Engravers Associates, and the Chelsea Arts Club, London. He received a silver medal from the Print Makers Society of California, 1924; Frank G. Logan Medal at the International Exhibition, Chicago Society of Etchers, 1925; Frank G. Logan Prize and Medal, at the International Exhibition, Chicago Society of Etchers, 1927; and Brooklyn Society of Etchers Prize, 1926. Rosenberg’s work is represented in the permanent collections of the United States National Museum, Library of Congress, New York Public Library, Cleveland Museum of Art, The British Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum and the Royal Academy of Arts, Stockholm.
