Visit to the exhibition of Frances Hodgkins portraits

This morning Dame Patsy and Sir David visited the New Zealand Portrait Gallery in Wellington to see an impressive exhibition of portraits by Frances Hodgkins (1869-1947), one of New Zealand's  foremost artists.

Frances Hodgkins is well-known for her still-life works, and this exhibition is a wonderful opportunity to see her evolving style and talent as a portrait artist, from early water-colours to works in pastels and oil later in her career.
