Untitled [Beach scene] by Frances Hodgkins

Artwork Detail

it is possible to date the works painted in Concarneau because of their similarity to scenes exhibited by Frances Hodgkins in Sydney and Melbourne in 1912–13, on her way out to New Zealand. They are the most abstracted of the group, with the artist leaving large sweeps of the paper clear, either by sponging away pigment, or leaving the paper unmarked. She often used charcoal at this time, complaining in 1911 that her ‘pretty little studio floor’ in Paris was ‘dirty with muddied feet & charcoal ends’.
