Sincere thanks to Robyn Louey at the Art Gallery of New South Wales for sending scans of a catalogue (possibly the only copy in existence) of an exhibition of Annie’s works at the Alpine Club in 1956. See the EXHIBITIONS page for details.
As well as details of pictures unknown before, this has also added a little to what is known about Annie’s works:
- The full extent of the painting in the 1931 photograph can be seen, allowing for a better computer-adjusted image of the work and size estimate to be made.
- The painting previously called here ‘Young girl in a white dress and wearing a hat with a pink ribbon‘ is identified as a picture called ‘Trying on Her Mother’s Hat.’
- The portrait of Agathonike Craies is now known to have been titled ‘The Pink Frock.‘
Tthere’s been a bit of a rush of new information – three ‘new’ paintings identified, details and images of a fourth on the way (early next week, all being well), imminent visit to see Mater Triumphalis, plus the 1956 exhibition catalogue information. Quite a bit of web site updating to do which will probably take months, bit-by-bit, but any major announcements/finds will always be in these mailings.
For some reason I’d though that ‘Where Shattered Mountain Lie‘ was properly called ‘Where Sheltered Mountains Lie,’ a title used on some auction aggregate sites, but the former title is correct.
