Artist

Weaver Hawkins

United Kingdom, Australia

28 Aug 1893 - 13 Aug 1977


About

Weaver Hawkins visited Tangier in 1922, where he was inspired by the street life and architecture of Moorish buildings. The visit
was a turning point for him, helping him come to terms with the difficulties his wartime injuries had left him.

‘I have never regretted the would-seem fool-hardy stay in Tangier because it forced me to face up fully to my condition and the managing of it as much as was possible … I am sure it has a place in the development of my philosophy too.’

from Anne Ryan, 'Australian etchings and engravings 1880s–1930s from the Gallery's collection', AGNSW, Sydney 2007
