Smoking and modernism

I'm a big fan of the smoking-and-modernism genre (think Clifton Firth portraits, or Rita Angus's iconic 1936-37 self-portrait, or take a look at copies of Home and Building from the 1950s-1960s).

So this was a nice thing to find: tapestry (believe it or not - quite big in modernist Auckland), Louise Henderson, smoking and Landfall....
