Louis Conrad Rosenberg

Louis Conrad Rosenberg, born in 1890 in Portland, Oregon, was an American printmaker. Rosenberg was a prolific American artist who produced hundreds of etchings of architectural buildings and structures in Europe and the United States, from the 1920s to the 1940s. His etchings and other art are sought after by print collectors, especially those with an interest in 20th-century American art.


He studied architecture at the University of Oregon in Eugene. He moved from architecture to etching architecture during his next course of study, at the American Academy in Rome, between 1921-1922. He also studied at Massachusetts Institute of Technology before enrolling in etching at the Royal College of Art in London. Louis Rosenberg concluded his education in Rome at the American Academy.[1]

He subsequently taught architecture at the University of Oregon.


Rosenberg made a living principally as an architectural etcher; architects and builders would commission him to etch works of their buildings and structures.

The bulk of Rosenberg's work, however, was of European structures of historical importance. He also etched various buildings in Oregon.


With the start of World War II, Rosenberg enlisted in the U.S. Army and was assigned to a camouflage unit under the command of Aymar Embury, a New York architect. His company was sent to North Africa where Rosenberg sketched and water-colored. These are included in the book Middle East War Projects of Johnson, Drake, and Piper, Inc., for the Army Corps of Engineers, 1942-1943. The unit was broken up after eighteen months at which time Rosenberg returned to Portland where he worked with local architects Glenn Stanton and Hollis Johnston for three years.[2] He was living in Fairfield, Connecticut in 1946. He died in Oregon City, Oregon in 1983.[3]


Rosenberg was a full member of the Philadelphia Society of Etchers, the Brooklyn Society of Etchers, the Chicago Society of Etchers and the Royal Society of Painters, Etchers and Engravers, London.[1]
