Adolph Rosenblatt


The family of Adolph Rosenblatt reached out to Kohler Foundation to preserve the artists body of work consisting primarily of ceramic figures and large ceramic vignettes. The bulk of the work is a series of major sculptural vignettes that draw directly from life, often done with the artist sitting in front of the subject with a lump of clay. Rosenblatt was known to sit in the middle of the street to sculpt what he saw. Adolph Rosenblatt taught at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for 33 years. He was educated at the Yale School of Art and Architecture with Josef Albers as his mentor.  During his career, he was shown in more than 50 group shows and 30 solo shows. In 2018, KFI gifted 20 major works to five institutions including Museum of Wisconsin Art, Jewish Museum Milwaukee, Chazen Museum of Art (WI), Racine Art Museum (WI), and the Figge Art Museum (IA).
