(Richild Holt) is an expressionist in the grand tradition. Her large collection of oils reveals a vigorous personal sensibility, a technical mastery ... and the spontaneity of (her) fluid figure studies reflects no less power ... Richild Holt is clearly more than a worthy successor to the expressionist masters of the 20s and 30s; she is a vital and commanding presence with a powerful voice of her own.
