Frances Hodgkins

Painter Frances Hodgkins (1869–1947) is shown in 1945 in her studio at the village of Corfe Castle, Dorset, with some of her recent paintings behind her. From the 1920s her work began to show modernist influences and became increasingly abstract. Her brilliance was acknowledged in 1940 when she was chosen to represent Britain in the 22nd Venice Biennale. Back in New Zealand, however, her art was too radical for conservative public taste.
