My Bio “Not an X-ray”

Today I added (see above) a biography of sorts- a piece written in 1999 by my oldest son Roger to celebrate as he put it “Rothman’s first solo exhibition… a mid-career survey” (my only one I might add and held in the basement of our home not the Guggenheim or MOMA) on the occasion of my 60th birthday. I remember it well. Hundreds of visitors from the length and breadth of Bergen County, NJ filled the basement to near capacity. It was a blast highlighted by his wonderfully witty, warm, often tongue-in-cheek, and thoroughly entertaining description  of the works on display and the “photographer” behind them.

Roger was, at the time, a graduate student in Art History at Columbia University and is now an Associate Professor of Art History at Bucknell University.

I hope you take the time to read it. I am of course biased but it is very funny.

    Lew, I LOVE your new site. Not bad for an alter cocker! Kidding aside, it really is wonderful. You have such a great eye for architecture. I’m making this site one of my “favorites” so you better keep adding to it!!

    PS: Tully in B&W gets my vote.
