Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for THE PAINTED GARDEN IN NEW ZEALAND ART by Christopher Johnstone.

"From James Busby on, European settlers made gardens from the moment they set foot on New Zealand soil, and of course Maori had extensive cultivations of kumara around their kainga. Many settler gardens were matters of survival - kitchen gardens on which families were reliant - but as individual circumstances allowed and prosperity spread, many gardens became increasingly ambitious and extensive. It is hardly surprising that artists were drawn to depicting them, as they have from the 1820s right through to the present day. This collection of 100 delightful works, selected by Christopher Johnstone, author of the highly successful LANDSCAPE PAINTINGS OF NEW ZEALAND: A JOURNEY FROM NORTH TO SOUTH, tells the story of our gardening history as it intersected with our cultural and artistic development. Beautifully packaged and carefully researched, it is a treasure trove of magnificent images, many of gardens now lost to the passage of time."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: A former director of the Auckland Art Gallery, Christopher Johnstone now works as an art consultant in Auckland. His articles appear frequently in Art New Zealand magazine. He is the author of Landscape Paintings of New Zealand, an exploration of New Zealand through the eyes of our greatest landscape painters.
