The NEW-RISEN HOPE and NUDE IN LANDSCAPE butterflies
The Melbourne New-risen Hope has a butterfly on the child’s chest, a motif also present in the Nude in landscape sketch. The latter painting is an ‘attributed’ work because it has only word-of-mouth provenance, but the presence of this motif – as well as general style, subject matter and impasto technique – strengthens the case for it being by Annie.
