In 1996 Ethel Carrick Fox became Australia's highest priced woman artist when her painting of a French flower market sold at auction for $105.500. She had been ignored for decades -- some of her unsigned works had been attributed to her more famous husband, Emanuel Phillips Fox, by unscrupulous art dealers who also accused her of forging her husband's name on her works in order to sell them at higher prices. Carrick's life was just as colourful as her art. Born in 1872, she graduated from London's famous Slade Art School. She became fascinated by the work of Monet and Pissarro and produced impressionist views which were shown at London's Royal Academy. After her marriage to Australian Emanuel Phillip Fox she settled in Paris with her husband. Paris was the centre of the art world -- young artists such as Picasso and Matisse were increasing the role of colour in art. Carrick, more daring than her husband, exhibited with Matisse and Derain; abandoning impressionism in favour of the colourful linear style we now call Post-Impressionism. She and Emanuel painted in France and in North Africa before sailing to Melbourne.
There she soon realized that her Jewish in-laws saw her as a shiksa, an outsider. They could not forgive her childless state and her belief that dignity in marriage depended on the woman's financial independence. Hurt by their rejection, Carrick went to stay in a Theosophical commune at The Manor, Mosman, led by a handsome, scandal-prone guru, where she painted beach scenes Please click here to ask a question
