exhibition Details

Lennard Casbolt was a pioneering practitioner of Pictorialism, a photographic style that mirrors the effects of painting through dramatic use of light and composition, and via the evocation of mood. Browse this selection of photographs that conveys the artist's life's work to gain an understanding of his role at the forefront of art photography in post-WWI New Zealand. Trace the effect of modern art practices on Casbolt, as his early painterly style gave way to photographs whose focus is sharper and whose subjects are urban. Experience the development of a long artistic career influenced by dramatic shifts in taste, technique and technology.​
