Art at Te Papa free pdf Art at Te Papa reveals and illuminates New Zealand's vast national art collection. Reproductions of more than 400 individual artworks, personally selected by curators, are accompanied by brief essays giving expert and engaging commentary on each work. This book spans the entire collection, from the cream of its early European prints holdings to its most exciting contemporary acquisitions. Here are international artworks by Rembrandt van Rijn, Albrechet Durer, Marcel Duchamp, Barbara Hepworth, Natalie Gontchorova and Robert Mapplethorpe, alongside masterpieces from some of New Zealand's most significant and best-loved artists - Charles Goldie, Rita Angus, Ralph Hotere, Colin McCahon, Frances Hodgkins, Bill Hammond, Shane Cotton and Yvonne Todd - as well as little-known artworks that will surprise and inform readers.

The first to tell that story, Art at Te Papa is a significant resource and a genuine treasure for all New Zealanders and lovers of art.
