Provenance / History :
Story / Additional Info : Many artists have portrayed horses in their work, yet the horses of G. H. ROTHE seems to capture the human nature of life itself. To her the horse expresses the very nature of man and the basic drive of all human beings; powerful and expressive yet playful and serene. The search for this balance is common to all and beautifully discovered in the mezzotints Rothe. Mezzotint is the most difficult of all printmaking processes. An arduous technique it requires tremendous physical strength to work directly on a metal (usually copper) plate. In the hands of an artist like Rothe, the technique produces original prints of unusual richness and Subtitle tea with countless variations of tone. This paradox of great beauty born of painstaking labor describes not only the mezzotint process but the life and work of this artist.

Her first training was of a technical kind consisting of the drawing and goldsmithery practiced in her family. Shortly after finishing her studies of painting and art history she was awarded with the Villa-Romana-Prize which enabled her to live and work in Florence, Italy for a year. Her study trips included Paris, London, Vienna, Moscow, Madrid and Uruguay before she settled first in New York and later in Carmel, California. Museums all over the world appreciate her work. Rothe masters nearly all painting techniques but for the most suitable form of expression her choice is the technique of the mezzotint which is centuries old, skillfull and rarely used.
