Rita Angus, Self Portrait, 1936-37

Rita Angus, Rita Angus, Rita bloody Angus ... if you're thinking that then strap in as there's gonna be a few more over the coming weeks.

Rita Angus, Self Portrait, 1936-37 ... Rita Angus Smoking is what I call it but she's also correct. My current favourite of the ones I've seen in real life.

It's illusive for me to pin point exactly why I adore this painting, colour and form combine, the pose itself and of course the beret & cigarette, however currently I don't have the little grey cells working in harmony to fully express my love for it.
