Untitled [Summer Garden] by Frances Hodgkins

Artwork Detail

In 'Summer Garden' Frances Hodgkins demonstrates her bravura use of colour, saturating the wet paper with pigment before sponging off broad areas such as the tabletop. It is only after several moments that we fully make out the two women seated in the

shade, beside a large-wheeled perambulator. Like many of her subjects, they seem at ease in the artist’s company, going about their daily tasks unselfconsciously.
