Born in Brockway, Pennsylvania in 1927, Jack Roth enrolled at the California School of Fine Arts where he studied under Mark Rothko, Clyfford Still, and Elmer Bischoff. Not long after he received a Master of Fine Arts Degree, his work was exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum of Art alongside Jackson Pollack and Willem de Kooning.
