This Thing in the Mirror: Self Portraits by New Zealand Artists

Author(s): Claire Finlayson

New Zealand

Art history in New Zealand had been dominated by landscape paintings, but there is a compementary field of portrait painting which has not received the same attention. This book redresses the balance a little by presenting a selection of self portraits by well-known New Zealand artists. This Thing in the Mirror is not a comprehensive survey of New Zealand self-portraiture nor a thorough academic study. Instead, in a style intended to appeal to the general reader as well as the art specialist, it seeks to peel back a few layersw, offer some illuminating points and ponderings, and drop an anecdote in here and there.
