Frances Hodgkins is considered one of New Zealand's most prestigious and influential painters, an esteem not bestowed upon her during her lifetime, due to her Post-Impressionist style not conforming to the traditional New Zealand landscapes of the time. Femme du Monde draws from the Dunedin Public Art Gallery, and also contains works from private collections in the Bay of Plenty.
Alexa Johnston was the curator of Auckland Art Gallery for 19 years. She is now a freelance curator and writer.
Johnston's illustrated biography Sir Edmund Hillary, An Extraordinary Life, was published in 2005. Her most recent book is on traditional New Zealand baking with recipes selected from personal collections and community contributions, all tested in her home kitchen in Auckland. Ladies, A Plate was published in 2008.
