Artwork Detail Request a print

This painting is a portrait of Chief Tamarere, a chief from Koriniti and Atene on the Whanganui River. Vera Cumming was C F Goldie’s leading student and was praised for her ability to reproduce the tonality of her master’s paintings. Although Cummings and Goldie often painted Māori who were staying at a local hostel in Parnell, this painting is based on a photograph of Tamerere by William Henry Thomas Partington, c. 1895, who was C F Goldie’s uncle.
