Sheild of Achilles XXXVII.

Acrylic, ink, and collage on canvas laid to paper, 1985. 490x623 mm; 19 1/4x24 1/2 inches.

Provenance: The Artist; Private collection, Philadelphia, PA.

This work is registered with the Judith Rothschild Foundation (no. 85.10).

In Rothschild's Shiled of Achilles, and Eidolon series, we can clearly see her influence from Henri Matisse's Cutout work. Judith Rothschild saw the Pierre Matisse Retrospective at Grand Palais, Paris in 1970. The luscious figurative forms employed in her works of the 1980s are broken down and rearranged as abstract elements within the overall composition.
