Welcome to our Winter Catalogue for 2010.

We present another wonderful selection of Fine Art artwork extending over a period of 120 years of New Zealand Art History. Once again we offer several extremely rare and interesting New Zealand colonial artworks depicting areas which were sparsely populated in the 19th century. A fine large oil by a local American immigrant artist C W Foster of Orua Bay, Awhitu Peninsula, Waiuku, sets the tone. This artist who was based in the Manukau Heads and Onehunga area is one of the few artists who painted this coastal region. This was despite it being a relatively busy harbour and shipping area in the late 19th century. An exquisite early oil of Great Barrier Island has been painted by an artist who has only initialled the work MBH. At this stage we are still in the process of identifying this artist but needless to say 19th century paintings of Great Barrier Island are extremely rare. The painting remains in exceptional condition. Another fine landscape by artist Edward Aldis is included in the catalogue and this largely unheralded colonial artist is surely one of New Zealand and Australia’s best kept secrets. Favoured with instructions from an Australian collection, a good size early Margaret Stoddart is included in the exhibition. One of New Zealand’s most celebrated still life and early water colourists, the subject is a vase of white roses and these works are tightly held by collectors and are now extremely difficult to obtain. Standout paintings from the 1950s to 1980s are also included lead by an outstanding oil by Sir Toss Woollaston, a fine watercolour ‘nude’ by Patrick Hanly and a stunning oil by Ian Scott. These paintings would be fine additions to any serious art collection so viewing is highly recommended.

New contemporary paintings sent for the catalogue include works by Nick Wall, Robyn Gibson, Mark Wooller, Eion Stevens, Viky Garden, Robyn Kahukiwa, Justin Summerton, Tyrone Layne, Alexander Bartleet and Jenny Rendall. Following on from a most successful recent exhibition a further new work from Philippa Blair adds to a most diverse catalogue.

Three bronze works are now available from Alan Somerville, our Australian based New Zealand sculptor including a new bronze of Sister Mary McKillop. Another bronze depicting the Australasian mounted Riffle soldier was sold this month and a few of this small edition are still available. Please note the lead time for these bronzes are at least one month to six weeks.
We remind you also all artworks are available for immediate sale, so register your interest early for any of these fine artworks.
