Finding Frances Hodgkins
When Frances Hodgkins, our most celebrated artist, first left New Zealand in 1901, location became a key factor in her determination to succeed as an artist. In this engaging book, curator Mary Kisler follows in Hodgkins' footsteps through England, France, Italy, Morocco, Spain and Wales to discover the locations in which Hodgkins constantly pushed her exploration of modernism.
Warm, insightful, fresh, expert and richly illustrated with more than 70 artworks, this handsome book sheds new light on Hodgkins' life, art and social milieu.
