Arrangement of Jugs

Arrangement of Jugs by Frances Hodgkins

Artwork Detail

Arrangement of jugs is Frances Hodgkins’ only surviving print. Commissioned by Contemporary Lithographs Ltd, the 1938 series included artists such as Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant and John Piper. The latter gave Hodgkins technical assistance in what was a new medium for her, and the result was so successful that Piper judged it the best of the group. The objects are simplified; their forms outlined as silhouettes, and they appear to float in space, freed from the confines of the table. (Frances Hodgkins - Leitmotif, 2005)
