National Library of Australia: Hilda Rix Nicholas Collection

The cover of the latest issue of The National Library Magazine features Hilda Rix Nicholas' Portrait of a Young Girl. In An Exceptional Woman Among Others, Gwen Rankin explores the  research treasures within the Hilda Rix Nicholas Collection. Rankin describes how letters from other artists bring to life the newspaper clippings and art-related materials in the collection. For more information about Rix Nicholas, see John Pigot's Hilda Rix Nicholas: Her Life and Art (Carlton South, Vic. : Miegunyah Press, 2000).
