Born and raised in New Zealand, Hodgkins studied in Europe and would spend much of her career there.
Her distinctive personal style and story is a particular interest of the gallery’s Jonathan Gooderham.
The catalogue is four years in the making and comprises 19 of Hodgkins’ watercolours and gouaches. Prices range from NZ$38,000-280,000, though many have already sold, including Pergola, the centrepiece of the show.
The remaining pieces can all be found in the 42-page catalogue which is available from the gallery for NZ$25.
