Untitled [Still Life with a Bottle] by Frances Hodgkins

Artwork Detail

This still life in oils is of major importance, for we know that Frances Hodgkins initially found the medium difficult to control, compared with the fluidity of watercolour. She took classes in oil painting with Pierre Marcel-Beronneau in Paris in 1908, which focused on the nude model. However, this study shows she also experimented with the compositions and structures found in the still lifes of Paul Cézanne.
