This is an auction for ANGELS & ARISTOCRATS: EARLY EUROPEAN ART IN NEW ZEALAND PUBLIC COLLECTIONS, by Mary Kisler.

*** This book is on sale in New Zealand NOW. The Recommended Retail Price is $75. ***

It is entirely possible to immerse oneself in the glories of European art without having to travel to the Louvre, the Uffizzi, the Tate or the Frick. That's because New Zealand's public art galleries are richly studded with works collected by benefactors over the last 150 years and generously gifted to the nation. Many are infrequently seen and the richness of the collections often goes unacknowledged. In this outstanding book, respected curator Mary Kisler delves into the storerooms and reintroduces our historic art treasures (and those generous individuals who collected them) to us. Superbly illustrated, accessibly written and meticulously researched, Angels and Aristocrats is both a long-overdue celebration of magnificent and important works and also an indispensible and expert guide to art history.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Mary Kisler is the MacKelvie Curator at the Auckland Art Gallery. An art historian and curator, she is a regular guest on Kim Hill's Saturday Morning show on National Radio, where she speaks about art.
