Display caption

Hodgkins was a New Zealander who came to Europe in 1901. Based mainly in Britain, she also spent time in Paris.Like other artists in this room, she was a member of the Seven & Five Society. In the 1920s, its members developed an art that was both modern and returned to traditional motifs such as landscape and still life. A strong fascination with British landscape and traditions was evident. This is signalled, perhaps, by the fact that this scene was closely associated with John Constable. His view of Flatford Mill can be seen in Room 10.
