Listing Detail Tabs

Helen Crabb, who signed her work 'Barc', was an eccentric, forthright artist. A source of encouragement and learning for many younger painters, she made an enduring mark on the NZ art scene. Patricia Fry's book puts the spotlight on Barc's thoughts, opinions and teachings, and offers a fascinating biography of an extraordinary woman. Born in 1891 and raised in the Manawatu, Barc studied in Sydney and London. Teaching art well became a passion and from the mid-1940s she ran classes in Wellington, demanding discipline and intelligence from her numerous students. Barc's life and ideas foreshadowed the development of a distinctly New Zealand movement in painting. She was a focus for new artists - the innovators of their day - and encouraged them to develop an artistic integrity that owed less to movements in Europe and more to their own perception of what was relevant to New Zealand and their own lives
