New Zealand art in focus

Te Papa is a great museum but it might take a lifetime to uncover all its treasures! If you want to have a glimpse of their collection, consult Art at Te Papa and discover 400 of their best items. The South Pacific has been a source of inspiration for a great many European writers and artists, you can contemplate their work in In search of paradise: artists and writers in the colonial South Pacific. New Zealand artists are also featured in our selection this month with books covering contemporary art and painted gardens in New Zealand art. And if you are still in need of impressionism after the exhibition at the National Museum, check out our Art Recent Picks.
