This is a vivid and revealing book published alongside a landmark exhibition focused on one of New Zealand’s most internationally recognized artists, Frances Hodgkins. Marking the 150th anniversary of the artist’s birth, New Zealand-born Frances Hodgkins (1869–1947) arrived in London in 1901 and, by the 1920s, had become a leading British modernist, exhibiting frequently with avant-garde artists such as Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth, and Henry Moore. Published to coincide with a touring exhibition of her work initiated by Auckland Art Gallery Toi o T?maki, this book explores Hodgkins as a traveller across cultures and landscapes—teaching and discovering the cubists in Paris, absorbing the landscape and light of Ibiza and Morocco, and exhibiting with the progressive Seven & Five Society in London. Complete with a rich visual chronology of the artist’s encounters abroad, alongside over one hundred of Hodgkins’ key paintings and drawings, the book is an illuminating journey that moves us from place to place through the writings of a number of distinguished national and international art historians, curators and critics.
