HICKS BAY EAST COAST W/Colour by Kathleen (Kitty) Airini Vane 1951

Kathleen (Kitty) Airini Vane is best known for her watercolour and tempera landscape paintings of New Zealand

K (KITTY) AIRINI VANE 1891 - 1965 was the daughter of Scotsman Captain Gilbert Mair a hero of the Maori wars. Maori named her Airini to her friends she was Kitty. Airini true strengths was the love of the far north. When the Going family of Tutukaka, at whose boarding house she used to stay, built a deep-sea fishing launch Hugh Going named it Kitty Vane in her honour. Where ever she was she always took a lively interest in the affairs of the community. Kitty was a regular exhibitor at the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts and of course proceeds would always find its good cause. Ever young at heart she was known as was her father before as a person of extraordinary generosity. Later Kitty built a home at Langs Beach near Waipu in Northland and there she lived for the rest of her life.

Airini was notable for her water colours of NZ mountains and seashore, the latter often on Pohutukawa trees in flower. November 1951 Airini painted an area of Pohutukawa in full blossom Hick Bay East Cape Ngati Porou. I know that spot well she would have felt totally lifted and moved by her spiritual landscape. Private and public collections, including the Tauranga Art Gallery have similar painting such as this beauty. There is a Reserve named in honour at Sandy Bay. The painting is glass framed from its era fabulous condition.
