Ernest D. Roth

Born in Stuttgart, Germany, in 1879, Roth came to the United States with his parents at age five. He studied at the National Academy of Design, and with James D. Smillie and Francis Luis Mora. In 1905 he went to Italy and resided in Florence, where he produced some of his most important and finest etchings. He did numerous architectural renderings of the villages and hill towns in Italy, France, and Spain. On a trip to Venice he recorded 30 etchings of the city during a three year period. These plates, in skillful composition, transmit the elegance, charm, and tranquillity of Roth's work. On his return to America his subject matter turned to New York City, which he interpreted in a pictorial and interesting manner. This can be seen in such plates as, "New York from Brooklyn Heights," "Queensboro Bridge," "Greenwich Village Roofs," and "Riverside Church." His works are in the collections of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Uffizi Gallery, Florence, the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, the Brooklyn Museum, New York, and the New York Public Library. Roth was awarded a silver medal for etching at the Panama-Pacific Exposition in 1915.
