In 1953 the New Zealand-born director of London's Redfern
Gallery, Rex Nan Kivell, gifted 311 prints by leading British
artists of the time to Auckland Art Gallery.
That same year, Nan Kivell also gifted a selection of prints to
the National Art Gallery, the Robert McDougall Art Gallery in
Christchurch and Dunedin Public Art Gallery.
Our collection includes wood engravings, colour linocuts, and
lithographs by leading British modernists such as the Nash
brothers, Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant, Claude Flight and students of
the Grosvenor School of Modern Art.
