Walter Matthew Hodgkins

W. M. Hodgkins was born in Liverpool in 1839. He spent two years in the Latin quarter of Paris. In 1858 he sailed for Melbourne on the White Star, and in 1860 settled in Otago. Hodgkins was eminent amongst water colour painters in New Zealand, ranking with Gully and J. C. Richmond. He travelled widely and painted many New Zealand landscapes. He was a founder (1876) and a president (1880-98) of the Otago Art Society, and died in 1898.
