Product Detail

A pioneer of modern painting and one of New Zealand’s most influential women, Rita Angus was as distinct in her personal values as her painting style was bold: dedicated to pacifism, feminism, and above all, life as an artist. Jill Trevelyan’s award-winning biography sheds light on the story of the woman behind the brush, her spirit revitalised through letters and writings showing her as the articulate, intellectual, passionate person she was. Featuring over 150 photographs and artworks in full colour, Rita Angus: An Artist’s Life tells the tale of how a girl from Hawke’s Bay grew to become a legend in Aotearoa’s art world.
