Roses (water-colour (painting); Margaret Stoddart (New Zealand painter, 1865-1934); 1920s; Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Wellington, Welling...; 1936-0012-255)
Note: Roses is a virtuoso display of Stoddart's later watercolour technique in which she demonstrates her skill in the control of washes and play of reflections on the polished table, and in the loose mesh of rapidly applied and vigorous brushmarks that makes up the patterned background. This is one of her boldest and most accomplished flower paintings, and when the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts purchased it in 1930 it was their second still life of roses acquired from the artist for their collection. (Art at Te Papa, 2009).
