During the three year period leading up to publication of the book, the author made contact with over 90 painting owners to obtain images and data on artworks of Nita Spilhaus in their collections.

These are some selected works discovered during the course of the NIta Spilhaus Project. All these works form part of identified private collections. Many more were identified during the process. This selection merely shows some that demonstrate the breadth of Nita's artistic themes. It is hoped that the more people who chance on the book, or the website, the more discoveries of artworks there will be over time, and this will contribute to an even greater understanding of her art.
