Mary Kisler is the Senior Curator, Mackelvie Collection, International Art at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki. Mary earned her Master's degree in Art History and Italian at the University of Auckland in 1994. She has been a curator at the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki since 1998, caring for a collection that spans from c1150 to 1950, a large part of which is European art but which also includes a small collection of Indian miniatures and Japanese ukiyo-e prints. In 2010 Godwit published her book Angels & Aristocrats: Early European Art in New Zealand Public Galleries. In 2019 the Auckland Art Gallery will publish her Hodgkins catalogue raisonnee to accompany a major Hodgkins exhibition.
'Massey University Press is giving the established players in New Zealand art publishing some stiff competition with their elegantly produced and beautiful books. Even before diving into Mary Kisler's Finding Frances Hodgkins, it's a gorgeous wee thing, conveniently sized for reading on the bus or, appropriately enough, to put in a suitcase and go travelling even further afield. ... Kisler writes with a light touch and includes herself in the narrative without being intrusive, in such a way that getting to know her is a natural and pleasant component of the text and doesn't distract from Fanny H. at all. ... It's also handsomely illustrated with reproductions of Hodgkins' paintings (kudos for keeping those tricky colour values true), illustrative material and Kisler's snaps of the scenery as it is today. I love it. - Andrew Paul Wood, EyeContact
