Frances Mary Hodgkins (1869-1947) was a painter chiefly of landscape and still lifes, and for a short period was a designer of textiles. She was born in New Zealand, but spent most of her working life in Britain. Of course, I am most interested in her fascinating figurative portraits, so that is what we will view here.
