Ernest D. Roth was born in Stuttgart, Germany in 1879 and moved with his parents to the United States at the age of five. Roth's work records the architecture of America as well as that of the many European countries, which he visited. Roth studied painting at the National Academy of Design under Edgar Ward and George Maynard and at the New York School of Art under F. Luis Mora. He began as a landscape painter and was a regular contributor to the shows at the National Academy and at the Pennsylvania Academy.

It is in etching, though, that he is best known. He was unquestionably one of the world’s best architectural etchers. Roth’s works are included in such renowned collections as the Boston Museum of Fine Arts; Art Institute of Chicago; Victoria and Albert Museum, London; Uffizi Gallery, Florence; Brooklyn Museum; NY Public Library; and many others. Throughout his career he received many awards for his fine art including a silver medal for etching and a bronze medal for painting at the Panama-Pacific Exposition in 1915.
