Untitled [Woman with a Mirror] by Frances Hodgkins

Artwork Detail

The way in which the white of the paper of this painting suggests the volume of fabric, its form defined by only a few rapid dashes of paint, is a tour de force. While many of Frances Hodgkins’ sketches demonstrate her skill in different watercolour techniques, in this intimate scene we are also encouraged to consider how the woman feels about

her reflection in her mirror.
