At 85 years old Louise Henderson completed her series The Twelve Months.

Louise Henderson, January, 1987. Private collection, Auckland.

These 12 large canvases are described by art writer and biographer Elizabeth M. Grierson as ‘a triumphant outpouring of strength and determination... combining the sensibility of the European eye and mind with the lived experience of the New Zealand land and lifestyle.’

It’s on display at Auckland Art Gallery in Louise Henderson: From Life, the first major survey of the artist’s work, until 8 March.
