Rainbow Over Mount Eden
By Peter Shaw

Rainbow Over Mount Eden - taking its title from Pat Hanly's classic 1972 image - is a selection of 100 paintings, prints and photographs of the Auckland area. All have been sourced from public and private collections around New Zealand or used here by courtesy of individual artists. Most of the images are by well-known and highly ranked artists; however, there are a few surprises to intrigue the reader.

Here you will find both historic scenes and contemporary ones. The historic images have been carefully chosen for the way they cast light on much changed contemporary locations around Auckland. There are abstract images that may have had their origin in an aspect of the landscape without actually illustrating it. There are also images from the recent past that the passage of time has already invested with added significance.

The images of Auckland and its environs collected in Rainbow Over Mount Eden provide ample evidence of the beauty of the city's landscape and the quality of artistic endeavour it has always inspired.
