Two Hundred Years of New Zealand Paintings
By Gil Docking

"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...Throughout, Mr Docking has selected the illustrations to complement his narrative, so that they are not merely an assemblage of period works but are integrated with his text. The result is an illustrated study of surpassing interest, not only to students of New Zealand's art history and to those who appreciate fine painting, but also to those who see a nation's development in the arts as of particular importance to its whole social fabric."
