Anne Rothenstein’s distinctive and atmospheric paintings subtly combine sophistication with innocence. Born in 1949, Rothenstein comes from a family of artists and creators – a background which has also obviously informed and influenced her work.
She grew up in the community of artists in the Essex village of Great Bardfield: her father was the late Michael Rothenstein, the print-maker, and her mother is Duffy Ayres the painter. Her grandfather was William Rothenstein who ran the Royal College of Art and served as an official British war artist. Her uncle, John was a Director of the Tate Gallery, and her brother, Julian, is a designer and founder of the Redstone Press.
After working for ten years as an actor, Rothenstein has been painting full-time since 1982 and for the last two years has regularly designed covers for the London Review of Books.
