Published on the occasion of the exhibition The Māori Portraits: Gottfried Lindauer’s New Zealand at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki, 22 October 2016 – 19 February 2017.

This major publication presents 67 portraits and 8 genre paintings alongside detailed accounts of the subject and work, followed by essays by leading scholars that take us inside Lindauer’s world: from his artistic training in Bohemia to his travels around New Zealand as Māori and Pākehā commissioned him to paint portraits; his artistic techniques and deep relationship with photography; Henry Partridge’s gallery of Lindauer works on Queen Street in Auckland where Māori visited to see their ancestors; and the afterlife of the paintings in marae and memory.
