An engaging portrait of Annie McCubbin, by her husband Frederick McCubbin returns to the walls of Artspace for display in 2021. This disarming painting reveals a woman in her prime – in her early 40s – at a time she would have lived with McCubbin and their family at ‘the ‘Studio’ in South Yarra. Annie is at ease, peering from beneath a fashionable hat, as she sits for another of her husband’s many portraits.
