More than 75 paintings and drawings at the Städel Museum in Frankfurt (20 July–16 October) emphasise the German-Swiss painter’s close ties to the city and the museum itself. The exhibition follows the artist from her arrival in Frankfurt in 1891, to her time studying art at the Städelschule, through to the Städel’s acquisition of Old Woman Reading in 1902 – the first work by a contemporary woman artist to enter its collection. Highlights of the show include the vibrant Self-Portrait with a Hat (1904) and a rather more sombre portrait of Roederstein’s long-standing partner Elisabeth Winterhalter (1887–88).
