This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Jim Bradley, historian and collector:

Henry M. Rosenberg:
Born: New Brunswick, New Jersey 1858.

Studied in Munich with Duveneck and in Venice with Whistler, and moved to Halifax Nova Scotia in 1897 and became principal of the Victoria School of Art & Design (named after Queen Victoria) from 1898 to 1910. This institution eventually became the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design.

He died in Citonelle Alabama on December 24, 1947.

He did oils, etchings, drawings, prints and evidently preferred blues and greys. The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia has some 40 pieces of his work.

The National Gallery of Canada advised me that they hold forms (or copies of forms) filled in by the artist which show his middle name as Mortikar. They speculate that it may have been Polish and that possibly he used both Mortikar and Mordecai from time to time.

Obituary. Halifax Herald (Tuesday, December 30, 1947)

H.M Rosenberg Passes Away

Word was received here of the death of H. M. Rosenberg, well-known artist and formerly of Dartmouth, at Citronelle, Alabama.  Mr. Rosenberg was principal of the Nova Scotia College of Art for many years and his paintings have won wide acclaim.  After his principal-ship at the Art College, Mr. Rosenberg conducted a studio in the Tramway building.  His wife, who predeceased him ten years ago, was the former Emilie Scarfe of Dartmouth.  Mr. Rosenberg moved to Chicago about ten years ago from his home on Crichton Avenue in Dartmouth, and, during the winter months, lived in Alabama.  His death came after a lingering illness.  Interment was in Chicago.
