Boats in Harbour
Harbour scenes are typical of artists in exile. Born in Germany in 1897, Rosenbaum studied in Paris, Berlin and Munich (under Lovis Corinth). After the Nazis rose to power, as a Jew, he was forbidden to paint in Germany and taught woodwork and metalwork in Jewish schools. Together with his wife, the painter Adele Reifenberg, he left Germany for England in 1939. Upon arrival, he became a painter-decorator and china restorer, later setting up an art school in London with his wife.
