Frances Hodgkins: the formative years

Monday 10 July 2017, 10:30 am - 12:00 pm


Before Frances Hodgkins left for her first overseas trip in 1901, she painted, sketched and exhibited for some fourteen years.  Art consultant Tony Mackle will show a selection of images from this period of her career (1886 – 1901) and illustrate how her fundamental interest in the human figure, and the shape and form of objects became the enduring hallmarks of her style.
