Tony Rosenthal: 1914-2009
Best known for his Monumental Public Art Sculptures created over seven decades, Tony Rosenthal received his first Public Art Commission for a Figurative Sculpture for the 1939 World's Fair. Born Bernard Rosenthal, August 9, 1914, in Highland Park, Illinois, Tony Rosenthal passed away July 28, 2009, in Southampton, New York. While the Artist dedicated his life to Art; Rosenthal reluctantly attended Saturday Art classes at the insistence of his Mother, an Opera Singer, at the Chicago Art Institute, learning the craft of Sculpture, eventually becoming Studio Assistant. to Alexander Archipenko, the Modern Master.

The Sam Kootz Influence
The 1960's were a significant turning point for Tony Rosenthal as he changed his Name from "Bernard Rosenthal" and abandoned Figurative Sculpture. Sam Kootz, Rosenthal's Art Dealer, who also represented Pablo Picasso, convinced Rosenthal to concentrate on creating Abstract Geometric Sculptures which won Rosenthal even wider acclaim. Sam Kootz also encouraged the Artist to use his nickname, "Tony", and since 1960, was professionally known and credited as Tony Rosenthal.
