Robert Rosenblum (1927-2006) was an American art historian and curator known for his influential and often irreverent scholarship on European and American art of the mid-eighteenth to twentieth century.

Rosenblum was born in New York City July 24, 1927 and he died December 6, 2006. He studied art history at Queens College and Yale University, and in 1956 received his Ph.D. from New York University's Institute of Fine Arts.

Rosenblum's many important publications include Cubism and Twentieth Century Art (1960), Transformations in Late Eighteenth Century Art (1967) Modern Painting and the Northern Romantic Tradition: Friedrich to Rothko (1973), and Nineteenth Century Art (co-authored with H.W. Janson, 1984). However, he is perhaps best known for his innovations in curatorial practice, notably his inclusion of non-canonical works and his rejection of standard chronological ordering.

Rosenblum held teaching positions at Princeton University, the University of Michigan, Yale University, Oxford University and the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University. He was also the Stephen and Nan Swid Curator of Twentieth-Century Art at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
