Ms. Rothchild's elegant dry point etchings were inspired (the colophon reveals) by her sketches of her model, Monica. While a study of the female nude figure is a departure from her usual books, Judith Rothchild succeeds admirably. The intimate views depicted here are a match for those of her more frequently-encountered still-life compositions. Item #11255
