Description

In July 2008, Te Papa will celebrate the centenary of Rita Angus's birth with a major new exhibition of her work. This catalogue will be the first to acknowledge Angus's status as an artist, with full-page colour reproductions of every work included in the show. Drawing on public and private collections, it will present a range of Angus' work never seen before, from iconic paintings like Rutu (1951), Cass (1936) and Flight (1969) to Angus's celebrated and intriguing self-portraits, and previously undocumented works in a surprising range of media and styles. A substantial introduction places Rita Angus as a pioneer of modern painting in New Zealand and examines her legacy. Fourteen writers and critics present all-new criticism on every period of the artist's work, revealing what makes Rita Angus so significant - her vision, her virtuosity and above all her commitment.
