Rolfe Hattaway Drawings

Archive Collection Detail

New Zealand artist, Theo Schoon (1915-85) worked at Oakley Hospital from 1948 for a few years as a nurse-aid. During this time he discovered art brut artist, Rolfe Hattaway (1907-70), to whom he gave paper and pencils. Hattaway had been a committed patient at Oakley since 1937. In the mid 50s he was transferred to Lake Ellis Hospital. Each day Schoon would take the drawings that Hattaway had made and sometimes would date them. This happened in 1949 and possibly the years surrounding it. Schoon would show the works to fellow artist, Gordon Walters (1919-95) and Hattaway's influence can be seen in both Schoon and Walters' art works. The archive consists of over 200 drawings and some writings by Hattaway, two annotated folders and a copy of the catalogue Hattaway, Schoon, Walters: Madness and Modernism Auckland: Lopdell House Gallery, 1997.
