Although her paintings today fetch auction prices only exceeded by works by Irma Stern, Maggie Laubscher was almost 60 when Meintjes published this monograph on her life and work. This was just 16 after her first exhibition in 1928, the late start being accounted for by her long years of study, mainly at the Slade in London, and her early concentration on drawing. She painting until her death in 1973 at the age of 87. (Loosely inserted in this copy are three pages from a newspaper tribute published a week after her death and including reproductions of her first and last professional work as well as Ruth Prowse\'s painting of her as a young woman.)
The grey cloth-boards, green to panel and spine, are frayed and torn at the spine, and there are tape-marks on the endpapers and an owner\'s name on the front free endpaper.
