Fine. Rita Angus was a pioneer of modern painting during the 1930s and 1940s who went on to become one of New Zealand's leading 20th century artists. Today, more than 100 years after her birth, works such as Rutu (1951), Central Otago (1940), and Portrait of Betty Curnow (1941-1942) have become national icons. While Angus is perhaps New Zealand's best-loved painter, the story of her life remains little known and poorly understood, and until now has rarely been written about. In this revelatory book, Jill Trevelyan traces Angus's entire life, from her childhood in Napier and Palmerston North to her death in Wellington in 1970. Drawing on a wealth of newly available archives and letters, she brings to life Rita Angus the person: highly articulate and full of zest, intellectually curious and forthright in her attitudes and emotions, powerfully committed to her pacifist and feminist beliefs and dedicated, above all, to life as an artist. Rita Angus: An Artist's Life is generously illustrated with more than 150 artworks and private photographs to bring Angus-her private struggles and public reputation and her greatest legacy, her art-to complex, colourful life.
