During the mid 1970s Jane Zusters was part of New Zealand’s growing feminist art movement, and her work was included in the historically important exhibition Woman’s Art: An Exhibition of Six Women Artists organised by Allie Eagle at the Robert McDougall Art Gallery in 1975. Alongside painting, photography has been an important element in Zusters’ work throughout her career and she has often brought the two together in works like this hand-coloured photograph. Muir acquired the work in 1978 from a group exhibition at the Canterbury Society of Arts that included Zusters, Eagle and Anna Keir. (1969 Comeback Special 27 August – 6 November 2016)
