Description

New Zealand Painting: A Concise History is a completely revised and updated edition of Michael Dunn's essential overview of New Zealand painting, A Concise History of New Zealand Painting. It is presented here in a new format as a companion volume to New Zealand Sculpture: A History (AUP, 2002). To his comprehensive survey of painting from colonial times Dunn now adds the painters and paintings of the 1990s, bringing the book up to the present day.Several of the original chapters are extended and a completely new chapter covers the exciting area of contemporary painting by Maori and Pacific Island artists. The book includes over 130 colour plates, many of which are new in this edition, along with nearly 50 black and white reproductions. No reader, no institution can afford to be without Dunn's two books celebrating the creativity, the diversity and the talent of New Zealand artists.
