Usually Pentimenti show work by a number of their artists but this year they focused solely on Romberg.
He is an Argentine native who studied and taught in that country until emigrating to Israel in 1973 where he taught at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design until moving to Pennsylvania to teach at Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Examinations of color, geometry and abstraction are hallmarks of his work. These are cerebral as well as aesthetically pleasing pieces. He has often created work using mixed media in massive recreations of historic architecture.
