Richard Rosenblatt was born in New York City on a stormy winter night in the 1950's. The son of an acclaimed World War II muralist, Rosenblatt embarked upon his own artistic road when still quite young and has been painting all his life.
Richard Rosenblatt's curiosity and artistic wanderings have taken him traveling all over the globe from New York to Spain, Montana, Wyoming, Scotland, California, Senegal, Gambia, British Colombia, Utah, Morocco, Switzerland, Austria, Florida, France, North Carolina and Cleveland! He currently lives and maintains a painting studio in Brooklyn, NY.
In addition to painting, Rosenblatt loves music and plays in a band. He has worked as a gemologist and as a restorer of rare books, so that he has, in a sense, surrounded himself in his life with rare treasures and beauty. As he describes it: "I can't really think of any other way to live. Painting is a way for me to breathe a little easier, a means of expression of course, but in the end it's what I'm driven to do. It makes so much more sense to me than anything else. I can't see life without it."
Richard Rosenblatt has exhibited his work primarily in New York and New England. He has been the recipient of numerous prestigious awards including The Adolph Gottlieb Foundation Grant and The Pollack-Krasner Award. His work was chosen for the invitational exhibition of the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Richard Rosenblatt's work is included in private and public collections throughout the United States.
