Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Rita Angus (1908#150;70) was one of New Zealand's most loved and respected artists. Landscapes and portraits such as Cass, Central Otago, and Rutu have become national icons. But until now, Angus's life has remained a mystery. In this fascinating book, Jill Trevelyan (editor of Toss Woollaston: A Life in Letters) paints a vivid picture of Rita Angus the person #150; curious and forthright, staunchly pacifist and feminist, and wholly dedicated to her art. Stunning artworks, personal photographs, and insightful letters help bring Angus's colourful and complex story to life.

Includes bibliographical references (p. [358]-402, [403]-410) and index.
