"Francis Pound sets out to restore early landscape painting in New Zealand to what he believes is its only legitimate context: the aesthetic philosophies and genres of 18th and 19th century European landscape painting. Pound's thesis has its foundation in EH Gombrich's contention that the primary source for art is art, and that the language of visual conventions modifies perception. Landscape, then, is seen primarily in the context of landscape painting. New Zealand's early landscape painters were no less free of these constraints than any others of their culture or period. On this basis Pound goes on to argue that all early New Zealand landscape painting can be categorised as one of seven landscape genre - the Sublime, the Ideal, God-in-Nature, the Topographical, the Picturesque, the Sketch and the Impressionist. The biographies in FRAMES ON THE LAND are useful and often lively; and at least half of the plates will not be familiar to the general reader."
- Hamish Keith
