This is an auction for PORTRAIT OF FRANCES HODGKINS by E H McCormick.

"An illustrated biography of one of the most remarkable painters of New Zealand. Described by one critic as "one of the most remarkable painters of our own or any other country", Frances Hodgkins (1869-1947) had a long and venturesome career. This is an account of the artist's life."

From Wikipedia:

"Frances Mary Hodgkins (1869-1947) was a painter chiefly of landscape and still life, and for a short period was a designer of textiles. She was born in New Zealand, but spent most of her working life in Britain. She is considered one of New Zealand's most prestigious and influential painters, although it is the work from her life in Europe, rather than her home country, on which her reputation rests... During the 1930s Hodgkins exhibited with many important London galleries and gained a contract from the Lefevre Gallery to produce work for a full-scale exhibition every second year. In 1939 she was invited to represent Britain at the 1940 Venice Biennale, but wartime travel restrictions meant that her work could not be transported to Venice. She was highly considered among British avant-garde society and by the later stages of her career was known as a key figure in British Modernism. When she died she was regarded as one of Britain’s leading artists. In 1948 Myfanwy Evans (later Piper) wrote a study entitled Frances Hodgkins, as part of the 'Penguin Modern Painters' series. Frances Hodgkins is most admired for the freely painted works of her later life..."
