About

Hildegard Rath, (1909-1994) painter, author, teacher, and lecturer, Born in Wurttemberg, Germany, in the Black Forest region of Germany. Hildegard Rath became a painter of landscape, portraits, still lifes, and marine subjects and also a muralist. Her father was a bank president, her mother a sculptor, writer, and illustrator of children's books. At the age of 15, Miss Rath painted her first portrait in oil as a birthday present for her father and thereafter every opportunity for study was given to her. She went to art school at the Atelier House in Stuttgart, Germany and at the Akademie der Bildenden Kunste in Berlin. She studied with Lotte Laserstein and Otto Manigk, studying with Adolf Senglaub. In Germany she had numerous commissions for oil paintings in the 1930s and 1940s. In 1946, she married the sculptor Hermann Gross and emigrated to New York City. She became a citizen and settled in King's Point, New York. From 1949 to 1954, she was Director of Painting at the European School of Fine Arts in New York City and then became a lecturer in art history at the Great Neck Public Schools, 1961-62, and a lecturer on serigraphy at the North Shore Art Center. Her preferred media are oil, pastel, watercolor and charcoal. Her paintings have been exhibited in numerous one-man and group shows throughout both Europe and the U.S.A. and are represented in many public and private collections on both sides of the Atlantic.
