This is an auction for NEW ZEALAND'S ROMANTIC LANDSCAPE by John Gully.

From Wikipedia:

"John Gully (1819–1888) was a prominent New Zealand landscape painter... He was encouraged by the geologist Julius von Haast, who commissioned him to complete twelve watercolours of Canterbury mountains and glaciers to illustrate a lecture given by Haast at the Royal Geographical Society in London in 1864. Eventually in 1863, with assistance of his friend, politician and amateur painter James Crowe Richmond (whom he had met while in New Plymouth), Gully was appointed as a full-time draughtsman at the Nelson provincial survey office. James Crowe Richmond was a lifelong friend of Gully's and his companion in many painting expeditions. He continued to paint in his spare time until 1878 when he was able to resign his position to paint full-time. He was a popular artist during his lifetime and is now regarded as one of New Zealand's foremost landscape painters. Painting almost entirely in watercolour, Gully often went on sketching trips and filled sketch-books with careful pencil studies and numerous quick-wash drawings both in colour and sepia. Gully's large watercolours became immensely popular at Art Society shows. He sold all of the watercolours he submitted to the 'New Zealand Exhibition' in Dunedin in 1865 before the exhibition opened and won a silver medal. He exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1871 and in 1873 sent nine paintings to the New Zealand court at the International Industrial Exhibition in Vienna..."
