This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A painter and teacher, Clarence Rosenkrans was born in Hammondsport, New York in March, 1871.  In responding to a genealogical inquiry in 1899 he wrote: “Most of my (art) instruction was at the Artist-Artisans Institute*, New York, under John Ward Stinson and various private teachers. [Note: An industrial art college begun in 1888, its instructors included Walter Shirlaw, Charles C. Curran, F. Wellington Ruckstuhl and George Wharton Edwards.  The school was organized by John Ward Stinston – himself a graduate of Yale and the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris.]  Since then I have taught some and done some professional work.  I am looking forward to the time when I can renew my studies and perhaps enjoy the benefits of some foreign travel.  I usually spend the winters in New York and the summers sketching…” 

By 1900 he was working in Elyria and exhibiting in nearby Cleveland.  Shortly thereafter he moved to Buffalo, New York, where he remained until 1912 when he moved on to Minnesota.  In the 1940’s he was known to be teaching in St. Paul at the Minnesota Art School.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A painter and teacher at the Minnesota Art School in St. Paul, Minnesota, Clarence Rosenkranz also lived in New York City where he did background painting at the American Museum of Natural History in the Hall of Asian Mammals and the Hall of African Mammals.  As a dioramist who worked with Francis Lee Jaques in the Hall of Asian Mammals, he was credited by Jaques, who did the leopard diorama, as being his 'greatest teacher'.

In the 1920s, Rosenkranz was expedition artist for the Museum of Natural History's Vernay-Faunthorpe Expeditions to Asia, which led to his being hired for the backdrop painting in the Asian Hall of Mammals.

Among the teachers Rosenkrantz were John Ward Stimson, William Merritt Chase and Walter Shirlaw.  Memberships included the Buffalo Society of Artists, Duluth Art Association and Minnesota State Art Association.

Exhibition venues included the Art Institute of Chicago, 1899; and Albright Knox Art Gallery.

His work is in the collection of the Minnesota Art Society in the public library of Hibbing, Minnesota, and the public library of Buhl, Minnesota.

Biography from Vern Carver & Beard Art Galleries:
Clarence Clark Rosenkranz was born in New York in 1871.  He received most of his artistic training in New York City, studying at one time under William Merritt Chase. 

Rosenkranz moved to Duluth, Minnesota in 1913, where he conducted art classes to supplement his income.  He received several mural commissions and later moved to St. Paul, Minnesota to instruct at the Minnesota Art School and the St. Paul Art Institute. 

The highlight of his career was a commission in 1927 to paint murals for the displays at the American Museum of Natural History in New York.  The museum sent Rozenkranz to Asia and Africa to make studies of the natural habitat in preparation for creating the displays.  He was also commissioned to paint murals for the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia. 

Clarence Rosenkranz died in New York in 1959.
