New Zealand Painting: An Introduction
By Gordon H. Brown & Hamish Keith

This book aims to introduce New Zealand painting through the work of representative artists active between 1839 and the present day, using the historical study as a background to contemporary work.

The New Zealand light and the unique forms of the New Zealand landscape have influenced the work of nearly every perceptive painter who encountered them; from William Hodges who came here on the second voyage of Captain Cook to those of the new generation of painters who know no other place. The history of New Zealand painting may well be for its greatest part a history of arrivals and departures, but on most of those who arrived and those who departed, New Zealand left something of its mark.

In addition to its main function of providing pleasant, rewarding and sometimes controversial reading on a fascinating subject, this book has very considerable lasting value through the scrupulous research of the authors, the lavish illustration, the wealth of bibliographical information, and the thoroughness of the index.
