Julius Rosenbaum (1879-1956) - 1935 Watercolour, Morning Street Scene
A charming and delicate early 20th Century watercolour with pastel detailing by the artist Julius Rosenbaum, depicting an interesting architectural city scene including stone pavements and attractively built houses.
Holding has captured an idyllic view of urban life, with the striking architecture and fine details in the composition. The soft light carefully falling on the buildings indicates a warm sunrise scene, also revealing the dramatic contours of the buildings. Rosenbaum's delicate brushwork and natural colours are expertly applied to the surface, with pastel detailing to create a depth and perspective in the composition.

German Jewish artist born in Neuenburg am Rhein. He attended the Académie Julian, 1900-01 studying under Henri Matisse, furthering his studies in Munich, Breslau, 1905 and Berlin in 1910 where he was a pupil of Lovis Corinth. Between 1918 and 1933 he worked as a freelance painter and graphic artist. In 1930 he married the artist Adele Reifenberg. However, because the German Government forbade him to paint, Rosenbaum had to teach crafts in Jewish schools until he and his wife left Germany and moved to London in 1939. There he restored houses and porcelain and was able to resume serious painting. Julius and his wife Adele ran a private art school in the Belsize Park district of north London from 1948, until his death in 1956. The Ben Uri Art Gallery in London holds several examples of his work.
