Abstract: The article explores the gendered explanation for the complexity of the career profile of Australian modernist painter Nora Heysen. It discusses Nora's upbringing and exposure to art as the daughter of Australian painter Hans Heysen. It features Nora's letters to her family which described the involvement of Hans in the art education of his daughter in London, England, and how Nora negotiated her own modern style and professional career. The impact of British modernism on Nora is also cited.
