Spanning five decades, this retrospective of painter Judith Rothschild — the first since her death in 1993 — offers unique insight into an artist's search for individual style. In addition to her early abstract expressionist experiments and passionate landscapes inspired by the Monterey coastline, the exhibition presents a selection of her late relief paintings — the most original and powerful works of the artist's career.

Versions of this exhibition were shown at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, in 1998 and at the Phillips Collection, Washington D.C., in 1999.
