T. HERZL ROME

APRIL 7 APRIL 21 . 1940

WORCESTER ART MUSEUM

Born in Worcester in 1914, Herzl Rome has painted

on and off since grammar school days, for the most

part under the guidance of O. Victor Humann, for many

years instructor of painting in the Museum School. In

1926 he first traveled abroad, visiting Palestine, Italy

and France. After his freshman year at Harvard(1932-

3) he continued his studies at the Hebrew University in

Jerusalem, concentrating upon philosophy and Hebrew- literature. The intervening summer was spent in Spain

where, as he says, he was exposed to El Greco and

Moorish architecture. Then followed a year of painting

in Persia. There he worked for a time with a miniaturist

in the tradition of the great Behzad and also painted among the "naked mountains and desert valleys" of that fascinating country. In 1935 he resumed his classes

at Harvard, studying philosophy, economics and politi-

cal theory. After winning the First Bowdoin Prize, he

was graduated with highest honors in 1937. Then came

two years of painting and sculpting in Paris, with one

summer in Norway and another spent in the Medi-

terranean. The water colors in this exhibition are the

result of these two summers of travel.

Mr. Rome's paintings have been shown in several

group exhibitions of American art at this Museum and

he has also exhibited in the Salon des Surindependents,

Paris, at the Harvard Society of Contemporary Art,

at the Addison Gallery in Andover, the Fitchburg Art

Center, and in various exhibitions in Gloucester. One of

his canvases was shown at the Golden Gate Exposition

in San Francisco last summer.
