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.
