Born in Gisborne in 1920, Jan Nigro is best known for her figurative paintings, drawings and collages. Her name appears in scholarship and commentary of both Australian and New Zealand art.

There are certain characteristic elements that run through much of Nigro’s work. One of these is her intuitive and uninhibited use of colour – from the rich, subtly varied palette used in the Pioneer paintings, to the bright, often violently contrasting colours of more recent works.
