The red hat (oil painting (visual work); Mina Arndt (New Zealand artist, 1885-1926); 1914; Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Wellington, Welling...; 1962-0008-8)
Note: The painting is typical of Arndt’s single-figure compositions that fill the frame. The model, Wellingtonian Daisy Hay, wears a shapely buttoned tunic and is silhouetted by the soft light behind her, which also highlights the thickly painted green wall. Her face is cursorily built up with rapidly hatched brushstrokes, leaving her expression inscrutable, as though she has drifted off while posing. Once it becomes clear that this is not a portrait intended to reveal Daisy's personality, the eye moves upwards to contemplate her crowning glory - the hat. Its oval form is swathed in a scarf, expressively rendered in crosshatched slashes of deep red paint. Its gorgeous painterliness and hue are enhanced and thrown into focus by the simple flat background of harmonious brown and green. (Jane Vial, 2009)
