    Michael Quincy (“MQ”) Rothwell was a very talented modernist artist who produced some of his best work in the 1970s. He was active in New England and is described as a ‘post Woodstock’ type and a friendly family man who would travel extensively to sell his art at outdoor shows such as the Washington Square Outdoor Art show or the Glastonbury art fair.

    He was raised in Connecticut and went to school at Rockville High where he graduated in 1963. He then attended Paier School of Art in New Haven where he graduated in 1967. Amongst his masterpieces are several abstract works in oil and a cityscape of Philadelphia. He also won awards for various landscapes, a series of trompe-l-oeils and nudes.
