This monograph is devoted to Erna Rosenstein’s vast and complex oeuvre.
Rosenstein (1913-2004) was a prolific artist whose varied output was informed by her experience as a Polish Jew during the Holocaust. This book serves as an introduction to the artist and her story.
Alongside an extensive plates section, poems by Rosenstein are included in the book, as well as a narrative testimony of the war in Poland and a special insert reproducing a fairy tale authored and illustrated by her.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition, ‘Erna Rosenstein: Once Upon a Time’ at Hauser & Wirth, New York (30 September – 23 December 2021).
