In Memoriam: Angela Rosenthal

Hood Quarterly, spring/summer 2011

It is with great sadness that we note the death of our beloved colleague in Dartmouth’s art history department, Angela Rosenthal. During Angela’s years at the college, the Hood frequently collaborated with her on exhibition and teaching projects. In 1999, she was the co-curator of the exhibition for sale, a multimedia project by the artists known as relax, and in 2007, she collaborated with us on the exhibition No Laughing Matter: Visual Humor in Ideas of Race, Nationality and Ethnicity, held in conjunction with a Dartmouth Humanities Institute of the same title. Witty, gracious, and charming, Angela possessed a profound and penetrating intellect; she was the author of numerous books and articles, including two works on eighteenth-century artist Angelica Kaufman. She also frequently brought her students to the museum to study the collections, and conveyed to them the excitement of learning directly from works of art.
