San Francisco artist Joel Rosen was active in the 1920s through 1950s. His work exhibited strong influences of cubism and abstract expressionism. In the 1950s he changed his emphasis away from drawing and painting to photography. His mother was Julia Colton (also represented in the Lost Art Collection) who emigrated from the Soviet Union and made paintings and works on paper in the artistic traditions of Eastern Europe. Joel Rosen died in San Francisco in the early 2000s.
