Frances Hodgkins (1869-1947) left New Zealand in 1900, age 31 and spent time in London, Manchester, Paris, and Morocco, eking out a living painting, and teaching. She returned briefly to New Zealand in 1912 as ‘the girl from down under who conquered Paris’. Although her European reputation grew, life as an artist was always hard, and support from the Calico Printers Association, the London Group, the Seven and Five Society, and individuals such as Arthur Howell, enabled her to continue. Hodgkins remained fiercely independent, determined, and by necessity, obstinate. She is regarded as one of New Zealand’s foremost artists. This catalogue of a ‘Memorial Exhibition’ of her works shown at the Tate Gallery, London, is from the Brasch Collection.
