At the age of sixty-two, James N. Rosenberg retired from his successful law practice to devote himself to art. Despite beginning his artistic career at an advanced age, Rosenberg had long admired and collected art, including works by Henri Matisse and Amadeo Modigliani. He most admired Paul Cezanne, whose influence—including loose brushwork and vibrant color palette—is apparent Rosenberg’s work. “My landscapes have been and are magic carpets on which I have flown from a world embittered by fear, hate and greed to regions of peace, joy and beauty,” he said.
