Description
New Zealand born writer (1888-1923); moved to London in 1903; contracted tuberculosis and died aged 34; Anne Estelle Rice painted this portrait of the writer Katherine Mansfield in Looe, Cornwall. Mansfield had joined her there for part of the spring and summer of 1918 in hopes of regaining her deteriorating health. Of the occasion of the portrait she wrote, "A. came early and began the great painting — me in that red, brick red frock with flowers everywhere. It’s awfully interesting, even now. I painted her in my way as she painted me in hers: her eyes … little blue flowers plucked this morning." Rice, an American by birth, had travelled to Europe for the first time in 1906. She met Mansfield in her Paris studio, and the two women became close friends.
