A HUGE & HEAVY BOOK

This landmark book on New Zealand artists and their work, by Gil Docking, former director of the Auckland City Art Gallery, covers the period the period from European discovery up until 1969, and is presented in its completely original form.

Beginning with Sydney Parkinson's 1769 pen-and-wash study of 'A Perforated Rock', made off Tolaga Bay during Cook's first voyage of discovery, the text moves through four main periods, beginning with that of Exploration, during which British and French painters of varying skill recorded what they saw during brief visits.

The Settlement period follows, beginning with Augustus Earle (1793-1838) and ending with J.B.C. Hoyte (1835-1913), during which the young nation's painters were all European-born and saw the country as a new and quite unfamiliar land.

The period of Transition covers the 1870s to the 1920s, beginning with W.M. Hodgkins (1833-98), who arrived in Dunedin from England in 1860. This, the formative era of New Zealand painting, includes the first generation of artists to be born and brought up in the country.

The fourth period, described under the heading of "New Impulses", begins with Lois White (b. 1903) and takes the reader up to 1969, at which point Dr. Dunn's narrative takes over to complete the picture through the 1970s and 1980s.
