Henry Mosler Rediscovered
A Nineteenth-Century American-Jewish Artist
by Barbara C. Gilbert
America was still in the process of establishing her artistic credentials when Henry Mosler appeared on the scene. In the course of a rather lengthy career, this fine immigrant artist of German-Jewish birth did a great deal to help solidify those credentials, though since his death seventy-five years ago his oeuvre has slipped from public notice. His reputation has been restored to a deserved lustre by this retrospective, the inaugural changing exhibition at the Skirball Cultural Center in 1995.
Henry Mosler was the grandfather of Audrey Skirball-Kenis. Without the vision and encouragement provided by so generously by Audrey and her husband Jack Skirball, of blessed memory, and the Skirball Foundation, the Cultural Center would not have come into being nor would it have been possible to mount the Henry Mosler retrospective.
Paperback, 144 pages. Published by the Skirball Cultural Center, 1995.
