Biography Rosalind (Browne) Bengelsdorf
Educated at the Art Students League under George Bridgman and the Fifty-Seventh Street Studio under Hans Hofmann, Rosalind Bengelsdorf was one of the youngest founding members of the American Abstract Artists. She was a New Yorker all of her life, born in that city, and was very influential on other young artists to adopt Abstract Expression as their style.
In the late 1930s, she worked for Burgoyne Diller in the WPA mural project and was one of the few abstract artists to work for the Works Progress Administration. Her masterpiece mural was for the Central Nurses Home in New York City and was eventually destroyed, but the study of that work is in the collection of the University Art Museum at the University of New Mexico.
