Harold Rotenberg: An American Impressionist

April 14, 2018 — June 17, 2018

This exhibition explores the long and much acclaimed career of artist Harold Rotenberg (1905–2011). A native of Attleboro, Massachusetts, a prominent member of the Rockport and Cape Ann Art Colony, and a world-wide traveler, Rotenberg’s work displays a richness in color and vibrancy of brush stroke that evokes the work of the great Impressionists. Harold Rotenberg: An American Impressionist captures the artist’s passion for light and landscape and his love of painting out of doors where the experience was always, in the artist’s own words, spiritual.
