The Kelliher
Text by Richard King

67 award winning paintings of the New Zealand landscape and it’s people

New Zealand, it is often claimed, crams more splendid and diverse scenery into several small islands than whole continents can boast in their vast expanses. Sir Henry Kelliher agreed and, in 1956, instituted an annual competition calling upon artists `to paint the essential character of the New Zealand scene and the ways o f life of its people, to develop a livelier appreciation both of the fine arts and of the infinitely varied aspects of our land'.

This volume gathers together the 67 Kelliher Award winning paintings, the work of 39 of New Zealand's most popular artists from 1956 to 1977. The setting of each picture is described, where practicable, with a brief mention of the physical nature and history of the particular scene.
