Ethel Rosenfield

1910 - 2000

“Welcome to my world of stone” was a frequent quote from Ethel Rosenfield, who is renowned for her passion for stone, and her devotion to the arduous physical discipline, which the medium demands. Working in Indiana Limestone, Cararra, Red Verona and Quebec marble, Rosenfield carved out her sensual and organic themes. The family, female form, temple, and the theme of mother and child are recurring motifs. Her work has inspired praise from a wide array of critics and artists including Robert Ayre and Vie des Arts John K. Grande.
