Lot 252: Julius Rosenbaum (1897-1956) & Adele Reifenberg (1893-1986). An archive of watercolours, drawings and etchings by Julius Rosenbaum and Adele Reifenberg, circa 1903-50, consisting of approximately 55 works on paper by Julius Rosenbaum, and 15 works on paper by Adele Reifenberg, many in watercolour, but including pencil and black crayon drawings, and six etchings by each artist, many signed, and some dated, some mounted, various sizes (480 x 610 mm, 19 x 24 ins, and smaller). An unusual archive of studies and sketches by the Jewish artists Julius Rosenbaum and Adele Reifenberg, who married in 1930, and left Germany for London in 1939. Rosenbaum studied in Paris, Munich and in Berlin, as did Reifenberg, under Lovis Corinth (1911-15). From 1948 they ran a private painting school in London, and exhibited as the Belsize Group (along with David Bomberg). Examples of their work are held at the Ben Uri Art Gallery, London. (70)
