Between and Grace Crowley painted an extraordinary series of geometric abstract paintings, among the first in Australia. The entire composition is unified through the use of coloured lines that weave their way under and around the composition. Abstract painting has a jazz-like energy where dissonant elements are held within a dynamic rhythm.
Born into a conservative pastoralist family from northern New South Wales, Crowley pursued an unconventional course in her life and art that saw her become one of the leaders of the modern movement in Australia.

Murrell of the Victoria and Albert Museum has kindly suggested that the inscription looks stylistically later than However, he considers that the date could be an accurate record of the date the miniature was painted, and Rouquet, who worked in the style of Zincke, as a possible attribution. This would suggest that the Tate Gallery portrait could have been begun around this date: certainly the energetic handling of the wig as shown in the X-ray is very close to that of the unfinished self-portrait at Yale, which has always been considered an early work.
One can only speculate as to the reasons why Hogarth changed his image in so radical a manner by From these had to submit to the oeil-de-boeuf format, in which the engraver gave the portrait an elaborate three-dimensionally conceived surround that usually incorporated emblematic items like the artist's tools in the foreground.
