About this title


From the time she could pick up a crayon, painter/sculptor Rita Blitt has never ceased to make art. This elegant publication chronicles her progression from powerfully flowing black line paintings to morphic pastel drawings and then to 60-foot abstract sculptures. Ironically, when Blitt first encountered abstract expressionism she questioned the new art form; however, she eventually embraced it, crafting drawings, paintings and monumental sculptures to international acclaim. Six decades of evolution in an important artist's work. Dimension: 8 x 7 inches, 220 full color reproductions.
