About the artwork 'Red Jug'
When she passed through Paris early in 1931, Hodgkins lunched at the famous oyster bar, Prunier, with her friend Maurice Garnier, as well as visiting a modernist exhibition that included works by three of her favourite artists – Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. Matisse’s use of flat planes of colour, particularly red, seem to have directly influenced the red jug that gives the title to this work, while the cubist form of the other vessel, created through the use of flat tonal layers, may also be a homage to Picasso and Braque. The twisting, pale blue cloth rising up animates their forms and drapes over what may be the residual form of the back of a chair.

'Red Jug' is currently on display at Auckland Art Gallery as part of the exhibition 'Frances Hodgkins: European Journeys'.
