Biography  
Susan Rothenberg


Semi-figurative, expressionist painter and printmaker Susan Rothenberg was born in Buffalo, New York in 1945. She studied at Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, receiving her B.F.A. degree in 1966. She also studied at the Corcoran School of Art and George Washington University in Washington, D.C.

But her biggest apparent break, at least early in her career, was her employment as an assistant to the older, then better known artist, Nancy Graves in 1970, who is credited with easing Rothenberg's way into the art world.

Rothenberg's horse paintings began to appear around 1973, evolving, in the 1980s, into the human figure and were lauded by the critics of the day as a "return" to figurative painting, or a "new figuration."
