This painting is of plants in Rita Angus’s mother’s garden at Waikanae. It was formerly in the possession of the artist’s brother. In 1955 the artist exhibited it at a New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts annual exhibition where it bore a price tag of 15 guineas. Whether her brother bought it then or whether it remained unsold and was gifted to him is unknown.
