Although I travel Oz - NZ frequently, this painting will be shipped across the pond.

NZ$15 for shipping using DHL, packed extremely well with tracking and full value insurance included.

UNFRAMED - Artwork only

We appreciate good Australian & NZ landscape artworks but photographers we are not! A lot of care has been taken to try and represent the painting as near to the real thing as possible, particularly the colouring - no "touch ups" or re-colouring has been done.

John Emmett was English born (1927), migrating to Australia in 1948 and living in the Blue Mountains NSW.

Painting was his past time, working in the electronics and broadcasting industry (M.D Sherwood Radio and following this, announcer and station manager at radio 2KA at Katoomba.

He painted prolifically and with skill, capturing landscapes of the Blue Mountains NSW and also while travelling he painted scenes in New Zealand, Fiji, England, Scotland and Wales.

This oil painting is of the Kawarau River in the South Island of New Zealand, near Roaring Meg. This is in the North Otago area, many Kiwi's will have visited this area.

John painted this scene in 1973

Kawarau River Near Roaring Meg
John Emmett


Oil on board


Measures: 512mm x 380mm

Skillfully painted with realistic colourings (this looks to me as being painted in the summer time) if anything, the river is depicted too gently as the Kawarau River is deep, fast moving.

The painting is clean and undamaged, no flakes, cracks or other signs of age and stress from the environment.

Simple signing/date at the bottom left corner

As this painting is as yet unmounted (I intended to have a very nice frame for it but it never happened) it has always been kept within a protective sealed "bag" to protect it, in our storage units.

Although of sentimental value (I grew up in this area as a child) we really have no space for all of our artworks, so this must find a new home that can appreciate it. Please click here to ask a question
