To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Frances Hodgkins birth, Jonathan Grant Galleries curated a selection of works, dating from 1893 – 1945, by the esteemed expatriate artist. The exhibition, A New Zealand Modernist, featured 14 works for sale and an extensively researched exhibition catalogue, written by Jonathan Gooderham & Richard Wolfe.
Frances Mary Hodgkins (1869-1947) is regarded as one of New Zealand’s leading expatriate artists. Her works capture the spirit of an era greatly influenced by Impressionism and the beginnings of en plein air painting, Post-Impressionism, Fauvism and two World Wars. With a professional life that spanned fifty-six years, Hodgkins was one of the foremost artists of her generation. During her time in Britain she became one of the leaders of the English avant-garde movement. She travelled extensively and evolved her style from impressionistic watercolours to striking twentieth-century modernist paintings.
