  Henry Mortikai Rosenberg   (1858-1947)

 
  ROSPORDEN, 1885. Signed in pencil, on thin laid paper. Rosenberg was one of the "Duveneck boys" who spent the summer of 1880 in Venice being inspired by Whistler's etchings. This image, and a few others, are the product of that influence, but after Rosenberg moved to Nova Scotia in 1897 he had no equipment to do any further etching. See: Rosemarie Tovell, A New Class of Art: The Artist's Print in Canadian Art, 1877-1920, National Gallery of Canada, 1996, pp. 129-30, illus. fig. 144. In fine condition.
