Whose art gets seen, and whose is remembered? When a young woman in post-war London is tasked with recommending acquisitions for New Zealand's National Art Gallery she struggles to reconcile her idea of that far-away country and her own modernist sensibilities. Sleigh’s novel explores two women’s creativity and freedom against the backdrop of art history's patriarchal biases.
Thomasin Sleigh’s writing about art and culture has been published widely.
