200th Anniversary of Frankenstein
On the occasion of the bicentennial anniversary of the monumental novel, ‘Frankenstein: Or the Modern Prometheus,’ Rossin created his own view of this timeless figure. Published in 1818 by 19 year-old Mary Shelley, Frankenstein continues to shape debates surrounding science and its complications. This tale is now a permanent part of global contemporary pop culture. Countless films have been made about Victor Frankenstein and his creation. But most of these depictions stray far from the image of the creation portrayed in Shelley’s work . . . until now.
About the Artist
Rossin has established his reputation as one of the world’s leading artists. The Bulgarian-born American and his family relocated to the United States in 2001. Throughout the 1990’s Rossin traveled extensively around the world, exhibiting and working on commissions. Rossin has four portraits in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC: Ambassador Andrew Young, baseball legend Hank Aaron, famed actor Morgan Freeman and legendary poet and civil rights leader Dr. Maya Angelou. In 2015, a US Forever Stamp was unveiled in Washington, DC featuring Rossin’s image of Angelou. Rossin has created exhibitions for governments in numerous world capitals.

Ross Rossin on Mary Shelley’s Creation
“It is precisely Mary Shelley’s youth that inspired me to approach my subject differently. Unlike all other portrayals before, I prefer to see the Creature as a young man. Victor Frankenstein intended to create something beautiful, young, powerful and promising, like Prometheus. The Creature was supposed to have a future, open a new chapter in human history.”
