Anne Marie Hall’s ‘Five Footed Lithograph’ is a striking portrait. It is footed by subject not size, depicting a contorted figure with more feet than is sensical. Perhaps a self-portrait, this figure writhes before the viewer, evoking a live-wire or star mid-combustion. Where the history of portraiture is marked by reservedness, Hall’s work is alive, recalling the pressure (or desire) to perform.

Like Joy Hester and Mirka Mora, Hall forged a compelling female voice in an otherwise male dominated space. Now collected by The National Gallery of Australia, the Ian Potter Museum and Geelong Gallery, her absence is being redressed.

An original lithograph, the medium of ‘Five Footed Lithograph’ is rare in Hall’s oeuvre. For collectors of Modernist Australian art and those searching for a unique insight into the Antipodean movement, step quickly to ‘Five Footed Lithograph’ before it dances away.
