Roland NY presents exclusive exhibit of iconic sculptor Tony Rosenthal at Hamptons Fine Arts Fair July 14th - 17th
A Ring For Stravinsky, Wood Construction With Steel Bolts - Tony Rosenthal. $35,000.

GLEN COVE, NY.- Glen Cove, Long Island based Roland NY will present an exhibition of the works of abstract sculptor Tony Rosenthal (American, 1914-2009) at the upcoming Hamptons Fine Arts Fair on the grounds of the Southampton Fairgrounds July 14th through July 17th, 2022. The Arts Fair will feature 85 galleries from around the world.

This selection, presented exclusively by Roland NY in collaboration with the Tony Rosenthal estate, will mostly include many impressive never exhibited before Rosenthal pieces, curated and refined from his own personal collection over the course of a half century, both in the Rosenthal home and upon its Southampton, NY property.

Roland NY will feature various iconic works from small scale cast bronzes, to mid-size pieces and large outdoor sculptures. Over 35 never seen before smaller maquettes will be on display.

Also on exhibit will be select pieces that were available through auction in the early fall of last year, as well as sculptures consigned by private Tony Rosenthal collectors. One very prominent highlight, which was also one of Rosenthal’s favorite pieces, the 1,000 pound, seven by nine foot "Lovers”, will be included in the exhibit. This brushed aluminum relief sculpture with juxtaposed geometric forms was sold last year to a private collector. It’s unsigned, date unknown and is 80" H x 103" x 12". This piece is priced at $150,000 and graced the front yard of Rosenthal’s Southampton, NY property for over twenty years and will be on exhibit in the Hamptons Fine Arts Fair outdoor sculpture garden, just outside Roland NY’s inside collection.

Also in the exhibit will be “Moon Flower 2001,” black painted aluminum and steel bolts. Signed and titled on reverse “Moon Flower 2001 / #21-4 / Tony Rosenthal.” Wall mounted sculpture composed of irregular geometric elements with two interior voids. Circa 1995. 44” H x 47” W x 2-1/4” D. List price $25,000, “A Ring for Stravinsky,” white and black painted wood and steel bolts. Unsigned. Circular sculpture with rectilinear construction on a black painted steel base. Circa 1994. 52” H x 51” W x 11” D. This sculpture is illustrated in the book “Tony Rosenthal” by Edward Albee and Sam Hunter, Rizzoli, New York, 1999, on page 23 and “Big Red” (from “Accumulation” series) red and ochre painted welded aluminum. Signed “Tony Rosenthal” at bottom right. Large abstract free-standing sculpture of juxtaposed rods arranged with lattice effect. Circa 1998. 69-1/4” H x 61” W x 23-3/4” D. This sculpture is illustrated in an earlier state in the book “Tony Rosenthal” by Edward Albee and Sam Hunter, Rizzoli, New York, 1999, on page 17. List price $75,000.

As many know, Rosenthal was possibly best known for his landmark 15-foot high rotating sculpture the “Alamo” cube on New York City’s Astor Place. He designed the piece in 1967, when it was accepted as the first permanent contemporary art outdoor public sculpture by the City of NewYork. Other variations and sizes of the iconic cube have become highly desirable with collectors around the world, some in polished Bronze, Black Painted Aluminum and wood.

Roland NY is pleased to be the sole conduit introducing the collection and will be working with the estate to represent the personal collection of Tony Rosenthal over the next five years. All pieces, of course, come with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Cynthia Rosenthal. “We are grateful to the artist’s estate for the opportunity to continue to bring this truly outstanding artwork into the public sphere”, says Bill Roland.

Tony Rosenthal and his wife Cynthia made Southampton their home for over 25 years. The artwork now being offered constitutes Tony Rosenthal’s “private reserve”, his complete and intact personal collection. This artwork in the collection, spanning the early 1960’s through the 2000’s, also had the dual function of acting as “filaments” to illuminate or spark Tony Rosenthal’s inexhaustible creative exploration and experimentation with material, form, and light. This new exhibit will give art lovers the opportunity to participate in and celebrate the legacy of Tony Rosenthal’s essential and influential career.

As Rosenthal himself commented in 1999…“I’ve been told that I’ve lived a blessed life having worked as a sculptor for over sixty years without interruption. It has been truly a labor of love without regrets, and at this time it is still going on”.

Among his close friends, mentors, and benefactors, Rosenthal maintained relationships with an array of influential personalities including his longtime friend, legendary playwright Edward Albee, Carl Milles, Adolph Gottlieb, Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames, Helen Frankenthaler, Louise Nevelson, Sam Kootz, William Pereira, and Walter Chrysler among others.

Writing in 1999, Rosenthal’s friend, three-time Pulitzer Prize winner and art collector, Edward Albee expressed his fascination with Rosenthal’s work “He (Tony Rosenthal) works in all sizes. His monumental outdoor pieces, set in landscapes or in busy city spaces, seem always to have been there. His more intimate wall sculptures and standing forms have a monumentality no matter what their actual size, and at the same time, a comprehension of what space is proper to them…Like all the important metal workers – like Stankiewicz, like Caro, like Serra, like Chamberlain – Rosenthal’s objects instruct us, alter our perceptions, disturb and thrill us by their audacity, their wonder and their inevitability.”

Works by Tony Rosenthal are represented in dozens of important museum and institutional collections, among these are: Albright-Knox Art Gallery, The Baltimore Museum of Art, The Chrysler Museum, Cranbrook Art Museum, Guild Hall Museum, Israel Museum (Jerusalem), Jewish Community Center of Greater Buffalo, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, National Gallery of Art, Princeton University, The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Whitney Museum, and Yale University. His sculptures are also found in notable corporate and private collections.
