Biography from McTear's:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Joe Rose, was a surrealist artist, born in Woldenberg, Germany.  His art training in Europe was interrupted by the advent of World War II and he was imprisoned for anti-Nazi activities.  After a harsh time in concentration camps at Sonnenberge in 1933 and Buckenwald in 1938, he and his wife made a remarkable escape in 1939.  They came to England and he volunteered for the British Army serving with the Reconnaissance Corps.

After demobilization in 1945, he gained a Diploma from the International Correspondence Schools and worked as a display artist and director in London.  In 1957 he emigrated to Australia where he studied with Maximilian Feuerring.  He was elected a member of the Australian Watercolor Institute and in London, where he returned in 1971, he joined the Contemporary Portrait Society, the Contemporary Art Society and Ben Uri Art Society.

From 1979 he decided to live and work in London and Sydney, eventually settling in Hobart, Tasmania, where he was a Member of the Tasmanian Art Society.  He had one-man shows in Sydney at the Galleries of Barry Stern, Macquarie and Holdsworth (where in 1995 he had an eightieth birthday exhibition); in London at Ben Uri, Obelisk Gallery, Wilma Wayne, Jerusalem Artists House and Sternberg Centre, also in Paris and Los Angeles as well as many group shows in the UK and USA.

He won a number of awards including the British Empire Medal for services to the Arts.

His work is in the Collections of The Holocaust Museum, Jerusalem; Nuffield Foundation, London; Essex Arts Committee; Prince Mural Collection of Surrealist Art, Paris; Ben Uri Art Collection, London; New South Wales House, London and Bathurst Municipal Gallery.
