Louise Henderson: From Life
Felicity Milburn, Lara Strongman, Julia Waite (editors) and Christina Barton, Maria Lluïsa Faxedas, C.K. Stead and Linda Tyler
Cloth hardback, French fold dust jacket
In the story of New Zealand art, there’s no one quite like Louise Henderson.
A painter trained in embroidery and design. A French woman who found the freedom to be herself in New Zealand. A modernist who looked to European tradition for inspiration. And a pioneer of abstraction who remained engaged with the world around her.
The first substantial book on Henderson – and the only publication to illustrate artwork and archival material from across her seven-decade career – Louise Henderson: From Life connects this extraordinary artist with an international discussion about women modernists and confirms her importance in New Zealand’s visual culture.
