Rita Angus (New Zealand 1908 - 1970), Lawrence Baigent, o/c, 1938-39/1943. Angus and Lawrence had much in common but importantly, both were pacifists. Angus painted this portrait in the late 1930s, adding the elephant in 1943, while looking for new symbols to express her pacifist beliefs. The elephant is one of the motifs from the Ajanta caves of India. Collection Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, Wellington, NZ.
