Trees and tombstones 1969
oil on hardboard, 608 x 598 mm
Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, on loan from the Rita Angus Estate
Rita Angus’s unfinished paintings of the Bolton Street cemetery show her meticulous technique.
There are three paintings at different stages of completion.
This painting of trees and tombstones is quite far advanced, with a lot of underpainting in greys, ochres, and blues.
