ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the myths of financial patronage for Toby Edward Rosenthal, an artist from California in the 19th century. His art training started in San Francisco, and later in Munich, Germany, which was the center of the art world at that time. News articles about Rosenthal's art studies overseas, funded by financially-able friends such as Isaac Harris, were published in newspapers. This myth arose because Rosenthal had painted portraits of Isaac and Rebecca Harris. Attributions of patronage included that of Abraham Seligman of J. Seligman & Co. On May 29, 1882, setting the record straight, Toby's father Jacob Rosenthal wrote to the "Jewish Record," negating stories about funding for his son's art studies abroad.
