Ernest D. Roth

American, born 1879, died 1964

Ernest David Roth was born in Stuttgart, Germany in 1879, coming to America in 1884 with his family. Settling in New York City, Roth worked as a boy in a print shop. This sparked an interest in art which was encouraged, leading Roth to study painting with Ward and Maynard at the National Academy of Design, and with F. Louis Mora at the New York School of Art.
