Landscape Paintings of New Zealand free pdf With 135 paintings from early colonial art to the work of contemporary painters, this book is a must-have for every lover of New Zealand and its art. When Landscape Paintings of New Zealand A Journey from North To South was published in 2006 it was hailed by a reviewer thus: 'This is New Zealand art history made accessible, yet still full of scholarship and insight.' Gallery director Dr Fiona Ciaran wrote that 'the book is a cracker that has something for everyone' -concluding that is was 'simply a magnificent landmark in publishing itself'. And now this acclaimed book is back, with 32 new paintings joining the 103 of the original edition. It is studded with arresting works by well-known artists such as Colin McCahon, Peter Sidddell, Dick Frizzell, Doris Lusk, Rita Angus, John Gully, and many many more famous names from New Zealand art history. In addition, the book offers an opportunity for readers to acquaint themselves with lesser known (these days at least) painters such as Archibald Nicholl, Max Walker, Cedric Savage and Douglas MacDiarmid. With its biographical notes on each artist, extensive bibliography, fascinating insights into social history and art history, and with a beautiful new design and very high production values, this book is a must-have for every book shelf and coffee table. Indeed, in 2013 the Times Literary Supplement included it in its 'books of the year' list.
