Rachel Rosenthal (1926–2015) was a Russian-American performance art pioneer. She was born in Paris in 1926 and fled with her parents to Brazil and then New York during the Second World War. Rosenthal would return to Paris to immerse herself French theatre, only to relocate to New York City in 1953 and join the artistic community of Jasper Johns, Merce Cunningham, and John Cage.
