Dunedin-born artist Grace Joel (1865–1924) exhibited to acclaim in London and Paris, yet she and her art are relatively unknown today. Joel excelled at portraiture and mother and child studies and was skilled in portraying the nude. She received her artistic training in Melbourne and lived for the mature years of her career in London, where her work appeared at the prestigious Royal Academy, as well as the Paris Salon and the Royal Scottish Academy. One possible reason why Joel’s work has not remained visible is that few details of her personal life survive; only three letters have been found, and they reveal little of the person who wrote them. Undaunted, author Joel Schiff has pulled together from the words of her contemporaries, various newspaper accounts, scraps in other historical archives, and close study of her extant paintings a portrayal of this talented woman that is as intimate and engaging as her work.
