TWO HUNDRED YEARS OF NEW ZEALAND PAINTING, Gil Docking (1971, 1975 reprint)

Hardback in reasonable to good condition. Wear on the edges of the dust jacket.

ABOUT THIS BOOK: In 1769, Cook's Endeavour was off Tolaga Bay on the East Coast of New Zealand's North Island. Here Sydney Parkinson, an English painter engaged by Banks to record botanical discoveries, made a pen-and-wash study of 'A Perforated Rock'. This work is the starting point of Gil Docking's 200-year survey of New Zealand painting, which concludes with Brent Wong's 'Abandoned Settlement' (1969), a title that is itself a silent commentary on the two centuries that separate it from Parkinson's sketch. The result is an illustrated study of surprising interest, not only to students of New Zealand's art history and to those who appreciate fine paintings, but also to those who see a nation's development in the arts as of particular importance to its whole social fabric.
