Painting the Frontier PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Painting the Frontier free pdf Uncovering images of New Zealand through the 'new eyes' of early European explorers and settlers. We are familiar with the commissioned works of official artists documenting their first impressions of their new land, and new co-inhabitants. But less well-known are the personal sketches and paintings created by amateur artists. Much of their work was collected by Alexander Turnbull and this book presents fascinating images of New Zealand art from the time of Cook to the beginning of the twentieth century. Includes over 100 paintings specifically chosen to reflect aspects of people in early New Zealand. The pictures are accompanied by fascinating text from historian David Filer, which provides a very pictorial take on New Zealand's colonial past.
