James Rosati American, 1911-1988
James Rosati was an American sculptor born in 1911 in Washington, Pennsylvania and died in 1988 in New York City. Rosati moved to New York in 1944, where he befriended fellow sculptor Philip Pavia. He was a charter member of the Eighth Street Club (the Club) and the New York School of abstract expressionism. He was awarded the Logan Medal of the Arts and a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship in 1964. A 1969 show at Brandeis University lifted his career to new heights. He had other solo exhibitions and was in numerous group shows.
James Rosati is perhaps best known for his sculptures in stone from the 1960s, and the stainless steel Ideogram that stood over 23 feet tall on the plaza between Towers 1 and 2 of the World Trade Center in New York City. About forty monumental pieces of sculpture are located in the United States and around the world.
