To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Frances Hodgkins' birth, Jonathan Grant Galleries have curated a selection of works, dating from 1893 – 1945, by the esteemed expatriate artist, Frances Hodgkins. The exhibition, 'A New Zealand Modernist', features 14 works for sale and an extensively researched exhibition catalogue, written by Jonathan Gooderham & Richard Wolfe.

The exhibition opens on Thursday 30 May 2019 at Jonathan Grant Galleries, 280 Parnell Road, Parnell, Auckland.

Frances Mary Hodgkins (1869-1947) is arguably 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.
