The exhibition provided an opportunity to exhibit the miniatures (The Sharon Quigley-Rosenthal Collection / Louis Rosenthal Museum) and was the first time in over 60 years that the miniature sculptures of Louis Rosenthal have been on exhibit in the U.S.
November 22 - December 30, 2010
Sharon Quigley-Rosenthal and Nar Steel
....(excerpt from Gazette.net)....Steel has been president of MPSGS, the nation's oldest miniature arts society, for two years; she says this year's show is different from past ones in that the work of miniature sculptor Louis Rosenthal was shown on Nov. 20 and 21. The artwork had not been exhibited in 60 years, and Rosenthal's name holds particular weight for MPSGS members.
"In 1923, The Royal Society of Miniature Painters changed their charter to The Royal Society of Miniature Painters and Sculptors solely to allow in one American: Louis Rosenthal," Steel says. (excerpt from Gazette.net, a copy of the full review appears below)
