One of these works from the gallery's collection is Hodgkins' Yudi Y Moro (c.1936), a watercolour and bodycolour on paper. This work was painted at a time in which, from 1927 to 1939, Hodgkins was moving between Spain, France, Suffolk, Cornwall and Dorset. In this work, Hodgkins has painted two dogs, named Yudi and Moro, asleep within a backdrop of brown, ivory and black tones.
In a letter written on January 29, 1933, in Ibiza, Hodgkins said: "There is a special breed of Island dog which goes so well in the landscape - long legged fleet fawn & white hounds which really look & are dogs - not the inbred animal as we know it in England ... but pure dog - doggey".
"Frances Hodgkins: European Journeys" is on at Dunedin Public Art Gallery until January 26
