New Zealand-born Frances Hodgkins (1869–1947) arrived in London in 1901 and, by the 1930s, had become a leading British modernist, exhibiting frequently with avant-garde artists such as Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore. The catalogue provides a rich visual chronology of the artist’s encounters abroad, and explores Hodgkins as a traveller across cultures and landscapes – teaching and discovering the cubists in Paris, absorbing the landscape and light of Ibiza and Morocco, and exhibiting with the progressive Seven & Five Society in London.
