As a result of Frances Hodgkins's special position as a New Zealand expatriate artist, her works, and the documentary material related to them and to her life, are now divided between New Zealand, Australia and Great Britain. In the course of researching this book, we have come into contact with many private owners of her works, the staff of commercial and public art galleries, in addition to archives and libraries in all those countries. In particular, we would like to thank the following people and institutions for their help.
In New Zealand:
Dorothy Alice Field, who as copyright-holder extended permission to reproduce the works by Frances Hodgkins in this book; Linda Gill, editor of Frances Hodgkins's letters, for her expert advice and support; E. H. McCormick, to whom as biographer of Frances Hodgkins we owe a great deal and who generously lent photographs to be used in the book; Ron Brownson, research librarian at the Auckland City Art Gallery, for allowing us to consult the typescript by E. H. McCormick of Frances Hodgkins's letters and for providing material related to Hodgkins in the Art Gallery collection. We are indebted to Roger Collins who made available his research on Hodgkins in France prior to its publication, and to Avenal McKinnon, and Gretchen Albrecht and James Ross for information on the location of works by Hodgkins. Among commercial gallery owners, John Gow (John Leech Gallery), Peter Jarvis (Ferner Fine Art), Jonathan Gooderam (Jonathan Grant Gallery), Dunbar Sloane ( Dunbar Sloane Ltd) and Marcia Shaw (Tinakori Gallery) put us into contact with owners of Hodgkins's works and provided photographs of her works for use in the book. Peter Shaw, curator of the Fletcher Challenge Collection, allowed us to view the works by Hodgkins in the collection. We are grateful to Jetta and Bruce Cornish, Adrian Burr, Maurice and Beverley Allen, Sir Ron and Lady Trotter, Lyn and Frank Corner, Elizabeth Steiner, the Honourable Philip Burdon and Ros Burdon, and other unnamed owners who gave us access to Hodgkins works in their collections and agreed to their reproduction.
