Cass 1936
Oil on canvas 375 x 474 - Signed lower right "RITA COOK"
Robert Mc Dougall Art Gallery, Christchurch.

Buildings set in relationship to specific places became an important vehicle of symbolic expressionism early in Rita Angus's career. Cass is a watershed both in her own painting style and for New Zealand landscapes of the 1930s.
