Judy Cassab is among Australia's most successful portrait painters. Since arriving in Sydney from Europe in 1951, she has created numerous portraits - those commissioned by corporate leaders and social luminaries along with personal and intimate portrayals of family and friends - which collectively have resulted in a distinct and comprehensive record of Australian society and culture throughout the second half of the 20th century.
