(Hairbrush And Mirror)

c1925. Linocut, 10 x 10cm.

Provenance: Artarmon Galleries. Illustrated in Butler, A Survey of Australian Relief Prints, 1978, plate 53.

‘Hairbrush and mirror’ and ‘Potts Point’ are considered to be Perry’s earliest linocuts. “These [linocuts] encouraged simplification of form and colour in keeping with her modernist compositions (she was a foundation member of the Contemporary Group in 1926). She taught linocut printmaking to a number of other artists, including Vera Blackburn and Lisette Kohlhagen, and was largely responsible (with Thea Proctor and Margaret Preston) for the popularity of linocuts at the time.” Ref: AGNSW.
