ROSENTHAL, Toby Edward, artist, born in New Haven, Connecticut, 15 March, 1848. He removed with his family to San Francisco in 1855, and began the study of art there under Fortunato Arriola in 1864. The following year he went to Munich and became a pupil at the Royal academy, then studied under Carl Raupp, and later (1868-'74) again at the academy, under Carl von Piloty. He gained medals in Munich in 1870 and 1883, and in Philadelphia in 1876. Excepting some visits to his home, his professional life has been spent in Europe. His more important works are "Love's Last Offering" and "Spring's Joy and Sorrow" (1868); "Morning Prayers in Bach's Family," which was bought by the Saxon government, and is now in the museum of Leipsic (1870) ; "Elaine" (1874) ; " Young Monk in Refectory" (1875) ; "Forbidden Longings," "Who laughs Last laughs Best," and "Girls' Boarding-School Alarmed" (1877) ; "A Mother's Prayer" (1881); '" Empty Place" (1882); "Trial of Constance de Beverley" (1883); "Departure from the Family" (1885) ; and " Dancing Lesson during the Empire." "Out of the Frying-Pan into the Fire," executed in 1871, is one of the most popular of his works, and has been frequently engraved. He has also painted some sixty portraits, in Europe, and, during his visits in 1871 and 1879-'80, in San Francisco. Very few of his works have been exhibited in this country.
