New Zealand's remarkable scenery is presented through the work of 30 of the country's leading contemporary painters working in oils and acrylics. There are beach, bush and mountain scenes, urban city streets and buildings set in the countryside. The artworks reveal the distinct and diverse styles of New Zealand painters with a strong following in this country and many with impressive international sales. Oils have a long tradition in landscape and portraiture, and while the use of acrylics is relatively recent it is capable of rendering the country's brilliant light to stunning effect. Former artist, connoisseur and dealer Denis Robinson brought together in this book a gallery on canvas that inspires practitioners in oils and acrylics and continues to delight anyone with a taste for contemporary New Zealand art.
