Amalie Rothschild (1916-2001) was one of Baltimore’s most prolific visual artists during the 20th century. A new book, Amalie Rothschild, chronicles her life and career. There are also retrospectives of Rothschild’s work at four institutions in Baltimore.

Today, Tom gets a tour of the Rothschild retrospective at the Center for the Arts Gallery at Towson University. His guide is Dr. Susan Isaacs, professor and coordinator of Art History at Towson, the curator of this exhibition, and a contributor of two essays to Amalie Rothschild.

Amalie Rothschild: A Retrospective is here at the Center for the Arts Gallery at Towson University until June 16.

Goucher College is showing a collection of Amalie Rothschild’s sketchbooks in the Athenaeum in their library, also through June 16.
