Description

14 in The Jack & Ethel McCahon gift to the Hocken LibraryMcCahon writes: "Red baby. Watercolour. Signed vertically lower left McCahon 44 [sic] c. 24 x 20. (Anne & William) watercolour. Painted at Renwicktown, Blenheim - the red was a zoot suit thing. The chair is the same one as previously painted - or was it? The dating of this work & its actual origins remain a forgotten thing - did my sister have a similar victorian chair? I have a definitely Renwicktown drawing of Anne in the same chair."
Lower left (l.l.) vertically: McCahon 45; (depicts artist’s wife Anne holding son William.)
