Pleasure Garden (1932) by France Hodgkins: The renowned New Zealand art historian E.H. McCormick commented that: ‘The Pleasure Garden Incident was perhaps a turning point, in the struggle of New Zealand art to free itself from the bondage of timid prejudice and sterile convention. From 1951, when ‘Pleasure garden’ was finally accepted and hung, a future historian may find it convenient to date New Zealand’s emergence from colonial status in the arts.’ (Brought to Light, November 2009)
