Ethel Rosenfield was born in Poland and studied at the École des beaux-arts de Montréal, notably as a student of Armand Filion and Louis Archambault. In 1962, she cofounded the Association des Sculpteurs du Québec (Quebec Sculptors Association). Her works have been exhibited throughout Canada and in France, including at the Musée Rodin in Paris, and she participated in the 1966 Symposium de sculpture de Joliette. In her sculptural work, she favoured organic or abstract forms, as well as creating schematized representations of women’s bodies and faces.
