I noticed that some of the Rita Angus paintings in the John Money Collection at the Eastern Southland Gallery were worthy of inclusion in the “Life and Vision“. Arguably (and this is only my opinion) the two moon paintings in the Money collection are equal or better than those in the show. One is from the strangely ovular 1965 series but I prefer “Moon, London, 1960” (couldn’t find a pic sorry).
Because I am naïve about these things I have questions. Mainly how were the pictures selected for “Life and Vision”? It appears they mainly came from the Angus Estate/Te Papa.
