Description

"[Field's] ideas on painting had been influenced by the Post-Impressionists to the extent of allowing heightened colour and a degree of flattening and formal interest in the constructin of the imagery. Anywhere else Field would not have seemed particularly modern or controversial. In Dunedin, though, in his first few years between 1925 and 1932 he made quite an impact as both teacher and artist." Dunn, Michael. A Concise History of New Zealand Painting (Concise History of New Zealand Painting) p. 70.
