By 1938, when the lithograph Arrangement of Jugs was printed at the famous Curwin Press, Frances Hodgkins had forged a successful career in England as a painter and was highly regarded among her contemporaries, including John Piper, Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore. With its emphasis on drawing and painting on the stone, this print shows how lithography was a natural fit for painters like Frances. She successfully employed lithographic crayons and tusche washes on the lithographic stone to complete this semi-abstracted view of a still-life, which she based on two watercolours completed the previous year.
