BROWN, Helen;

Auckland Harbour

1969
Oil on canvas
700 x 900mm

This painting, Auckland Harbour, is considered one of Helen Brown’s finest works. It was first shown in 1969 at the John Leech Gallery. During the late 1960s and early 1970s, Brown’s landscape works became broadly abstract in treatment, although, latterly, she concentrated on watercolours, usually painted in the cool colours of winter light.
