The Big Picture
A History of New Zealand Art From 1642Book - 2007
"Since the first artist drew a New Zealand image 365 years ago, New Zealand art has been the two-dimensional expression of a place where cultures mixed, matched, fought, loved and developed a unique cultural history, one that continues to evolve. In six taut, provocative and passionate essays, Hamish Keith surveys New Zealand art and brings together the various strands of our cultural history, showing that they are never separate or unrelated but rather that together they tell the story of who we are. Based upon the six-part TVNZ series The Big Picture, and with over 300 illustrations, this book is an indispensible survey of New Zealand's remarkable artistic heritage"--Cover.
