|James N. Rosenberg|
(1874 - 1970)
He was born in Allegheny City, Pennsylvania and died in 1970, White Plains, New York. He is considered a painter, printmaker, art patron, lawyer and play write. One of Rosenberg’s most noted works is his depiction of the fateful day which shows dark storm clouds above Wall Street, as the buildings crash onto the doomed people in the street below. The title Rosenberg chose for his lithograph, Dies Irae, means "day of wrath" in Latin. He also painted March Parade of Colonel John B. Glenn (New York City, March 1, 1962), 1962, which hangs in Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of James N. Rosenberg through the National Gallery of Art. The painting shows Glenn's triumphant return to New York City, where an enthusiastic crowd of about four million people welcomed him home.
