Painting Out The Past
Publisher:Random House New Zealand Ltd
Painting out the Past celebrates the life and work of New Zealand artist, Patricia France (1911u95). Here is an arresting, beautifully illustrated biography that traces the lifetime of this fascinating, remarkable woman. During the late 1920s, Patricia travelled through Europe but struggled to find a place for herself in Auckland society upon her return to New Zealand. After many difficult years she went on to establish herself later in life as a successful painter. Most at home in the company of artists, poets, sculptors and actors, Patricia regularly corresponded with Colin McCahon and Toss Woollaston, exhibited her work with Ralph Hotere and Anna Caselberg, and acted as patron to the many young artists who visited her gracious Highgate home. In her later years she stoically ignored the onset of blindness, and triumphed over her earlier life by 'painting out the past'. Painting out the Past is a comprehensive collection of Patricia France's captivating and impressionistic paintings. It is also illustrated with photographs and includes extracts from the artist's extensive correspondence.
