New Zealand: A Painted Country PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

New Zealand: A Painted Country free pdf New Zealand: A Painted Country is a journey through a unique portfolio of landscapes depicting the favourite places of some of New Zealand's most popular contemporary artists. The highly diverse paintings display not only the wide spectrum of styles and techniques used by these artists, but also the way in which they capture and interpret that essence of a particular landscape - be it the light, mood, colours, contours, textures, or some other element - which attracts them to it. Beginning amid the grandeur of the Southern Alps and finishing in the deeply spiritual region of Northland, the journey takes in almost every region of New Zealand, reflecting the ever-changing character of the land. Now in a new compact edition, this homage to the favourite places of some of our most popular artists is also a tribute to the painted country itself, New Zealand.
