Karin Rosenthal’s photographs of the human figure in the landscape reside in numerous private and museum collections including the Boston MFA, Boston Public Library, Brooklyn Museum, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, the Fogg, Rose, and Danforth Art Museums, the ICP, and the Yale University Art Gallery. In 1978, Rosenthal received an alumna traveling fellowship from Wellesley College to photograph in Greece. Since then, her nudes have been exhibited internationally with recent showings at the Benham Gallery in Seattle and Verve Gallery in Santa Fe. Rosenthal’s image in the exhibition First Doubt: Optical Confusion in Modern Photography at the Yale University Art Gallery was selected to represent the show of 100 images by 20th Century photographers and was featured in the New York Times review. A book, Karin Rosenthal: Twenty Years of Photographs, was produced for a retrospective of her work at the Danforth Museum in 2000. Rosenthal received a LEF Foundation Grant, the 2006 Ultimate Eye Foundation Grant for Figurative Photography, Grand Prize in the 2010 Renaissance International Photography Competition and First Prize in Nudes for the 2010 Julia Margaret Cameron Awards. She is a Resident Scholar at Brandeis University’s Women’s Studies Research Center.

Sale of this print benefits the Photographic Resource Center, a non-profit arts organization based in Boston that serves as a vital forum for the exploration and interpretation of new work, ideas, and methods in photography and related media.
