Dorrit Black was born in Adelaide 1891, her father an engineer and architect, her mother an amateur artist. After initially training at the South Australian School of Arts and Crafts, she moved to Sydney in 1915 to study at Julian Ashton’s Sydney Art School, where she later became a tutor with the likes of Thea Proctor and Henry Gibbons. Moving to London in 1927 she promptly enrolled at the Grosvenor School of Modern Art, Pimlico. It was here under the tutelage of Claude Flight (1881-1955), the British pioneer of linoleum cut technique, she produced her first colour linocuts. Flight became a lifelong friend and mentor, whose pioneering ideas, advice and encouragement had an enduring effect on her career. Under Flight, Black, and later fellow Australians Eveline Syme (1888-1961) & Ethel Spowers (1890-1947), learnt the principles of modern design; geometric order, the golden section and the underlying rhythms of the modern age. Black departed London for Paris in late December 1927 and moved briefly to Paris where she studied under Andre Lhote, however her relationship with Flight endured. They wrote regularly from 1928 and he often assisted in the inclusion of her works in English exhibitions. Wings, 1927-9 is one of Black’s earliest colour linocuts and is prophetic of the Australian 1930’s Art Deco movement. It shows deliberate adherance to Flight’s principle that art should reflect the energy of the modern age The figures are grouped in a shallow space and placed along the divisions of the Golden Mean. The horizon line is brought forward to the picture plane by the straightforward and daring device of having it coincide with the arm of the central figure, uniting the fore and background. It’s success was exemplified by the fact that Flight used the print is his own lectures, writing to Black: ‘I got your prints & had the small one reproduced with 3 others on a slide in my lecture – the Jolly naïve one of the dancing on the sand, I like it so much’ and also by it’s selection for the first organised linocut art exhibition in London held at Redfern Galleries in July 1929. Black is well-known to have made linocuts for her friends. This particular example is from the Estate of John Edward Pearce of Auckland. Pearce is the nephew of New Zealand artist Helen Crabb (1920-67), a known friend of Black’s, whom she met whilst studying at the Sydney Art School. An inscription to the reverse of the work states that the linocut was given to M C Pearce as a wedding present in 1931. The figures depicted are inscribed from left to right as ‘Florence Taylor, Artist Sydney mid 1920s; Helen Priscilla Crabb (‘Barc’); Dot Hawthorne, Artist Sydney mid 1920’s. Previously the figures depicited in Wings have not been attributed. Whilst Black declared her prints as editions of 50, she in fact never printed a full edition. The largest recorded edition is 26/50 for The windswept farm. She did not always sign her prints and she never dated them. Black’s prints very rarely appear at auction. This is the only known impression of Wings to have come to the market.

Toss Woollaston bought a villa at 33 Kilgour Road, Greymouth, in April 1949 and painted this iconic Greymouth urban landscape from the veranda of the home while residing there with his family, in 1953. These were difficult and challenging times for the artist. One positive development during the early 50s was that Toss began to lecture occasionally for the National Council of Adult Education (the organisation was established in 1947 with the objective of promoting adult education and the promotion of the arts). This involvement was encouraged by the new West Coast Adult Education Tutor, Stanley Blackmore (1927-2000); who played an important part in the artist’s life during these early years, and encouraged Toss’s continuance with his art. Toss found this teaching demanding but it provided extra income help alleviate the artist’s isolation in Greymouth. From 1953, Stan also supported and lived with Toss while Toss’s wife Edith was in Dunedin convalescing. He helped the artist directly, to support his family. There was some question of romantic attachment between Toss and Stan., to whom this work was gifted in 1953. The work depicts an expansive urban view of Greymouth painted from the artist’s home, and looks down and across to roofs and houses below, out across to a coaling tower in the distance, and beyond to sea and sky, with cloudy greys and a brooding West Coast sky and seascape. The hill on the right is the Cobden Hill, its treatment and the piece itself conveys Toss’s personal and emotional response to landscape in his work, and his early identification of the attitude to nature found in the work of the romantic poets such as Shelley and Wordsworth. It foretells the distinct and engaging beauty of his landscape treatments to come, and the artists ongoing existential struggle with his subject.

Gordon Walters is one of New Zealand’s most important and iconic modernist painters. In the mid-1960s, Gordon Walters emerged as a unique presence in the modern movement in New Zealand. Bestknown for work that fused the influence of geometric, abstraction of European modernist art with the traditional organic forms of Māori and Pacific art. Walters attended the Wellington Technical School of Art (1935-1944), becoming interested in European modernism through reproductions of works by Yves Tanguy. Travelling to Europe in 1950, he was exposed to works by Mondrian, as well as the pure abstraction of Victor Vasarely. On his return to New Zealand in 1951 he began to research Māori rafter painting and decorative design, visiting museums with fellow artist Theo Schoon and analyzing the forms. Walters modified the fern motif found in Maori meeting houses and traditional Polynesian tattoos, by geometricizing it and alternating positive and negative versions in the manner of the Italian painter Giuseppe Caprogrossi (1900 -1972). Walters made his first ‘koru paintings’ in 1956, but didn’t show them until 1966 when he first exhibited this painting in Auckland. His adaptation of the koru has been both admired and criticised by cultural commentators. Walters himself, when discussing the motif, increasingly focused on the fine mechanics of abstraction: ‘What I’ve done to the form is push it more in the direction of geometry. So that I can have in my painting not only a positive/negative effect of black and white, but I can also have a working of vertical and horizontal, which is equally important.’

26 Jam e s Patr i c k [ Pat] H a n ly (1 9 3 2 -2 0 0 4 ) Pacific Fire oil and enamel on board signed and dated ‘Hanly 86’ and inscribed with title (upper right); original artist’s label and Vavasour Godkin Gallery label affixed to reverse 120 x 120cm $70,000 - 80,000 PROVENANCE Private collection, Wairarapa The mid 1980s was a period of significant political, social and economic change in New Zealand. The declaration of the country as nuclear free in 1987 became a matter of national pride and collective agreement after a decade of social division. The notion of the South Pacific standing firm against its formidable allies, the Western nuclear powers took hold of the public’s imagination and escalated following the bombing of the Greenpeace vessel Rainbow Warrior and the death of Fernando Pereira on July 10 1985. It was against this political backdrop that Pat Hanly revisited his first major series, the Fire works produced in London in 1959 and 1960. The Fire This Time series executed between 1984 and 1986, has a direct and powerful message; one of National unity and freedom. From 1985 onwards the imagery and technique is freed from earlier constraints. Form is much more expressive and fluid. The treatment of colour is bold and asserts his reputation as one of New Zealand’s foremost colourists. A pacifist, Pat Hanly’s expressions of dissent were not delivered solely via the medium of paint. He was active in the Peace Movement for many years, including as a founding member of VAANA (Visual Artists Against Nuclear Arms). He was well known for protesting from sailboats on Auckland Harbour. The stylised white form of a ship at the centre of Pacific Fire references this.

It is highly likely that this work was shown at the Lefevre Galleries under the title Marrows and Peppers, Tossa. It was painted among a series of still life, which included the well-known Pumpkins & Pimenti (Fletcher Trust Collection) [illustrated above] painted in the winter of 1935-36 at Tossa de Mar, Gerona, Spain. It was from here that Hodgkins sent a suite of works to Duncan McDonald of the Lefevre Galleries with an accompanying letter stating: ‘You will see that I. have put a large amount of Frances Hodgkins into them even into the joyless marrows and I. do hope that you will not say that this woman’s work is not worth a penny a day to me.
