He Iwi Rangatira (installation view), Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki, 2016

Exhibition Details

Rangatira, or chiefly people, played important roles in the history of Aotearoa New Zealand – before and after colonisation. Meet some of these people, depicted in life-like detail by master portrait painters Charles F Goldie and Gottfried Lindauer.

Compare the work of Goldie, Lindauer and other painters with the way photographers recorded life in the 19th century and marvel at carved taonga (treasures) dating from the same time.
