Fine Art Print

One of Rita Angus’ famous series of self-portraits. This new print is a full size replica of the original artwork, printed to exactly the same size as the painting. The original painting has recently revealed one of its secrets, when Te Papa’s conservators put Angus’ self-portrait “Cleopatra” under infrared lights they could see the pencil drawing beneath the paint. It showed Angus had originally drawn herself holding a cigarette but had painted over it in the final version!
