Academy Women: A Century of Inspiration, An Exhibition Celebrating 100 Years of Women's Art in New Zealand (catalogue):
“Flora Scales, a Christchurch artist, is known for her work in a modernist manner derived from a cubist style. Scales was fortunate to study in Munich in the 1920s with the famous teacher, Hans Hofmann, who was a cubist painter and a strong teacher of approaches to art based on Cezanne's concepts and cubism.
Flora Scales derived a great deal from his teachings and her work combines intellect with a rich colour sense and a strong awareness of modernist approaches in Art. Credit is always given to Scales for her profound knowledge and the important influence she was on Toss Woollaston who, as a young man, studied her notes from her classes in Munich and passed on to him ideas and concepts that were to stay with him.”
