Art at Te Papa (Limited Edition Slipcase)

Author(s): William McAloon (ed)

Fine Art

A major new book showcasing the best of New Zealand's national art collection, from the iconic to the little-known. The evolution of the national art collection is closely linked with the story of Aotearoa New Zealand itself - its places, its people and their passions, and its developing sense of identity. Art at Te Papa, a major new book from Te Papa Press, spans the Museum's collection - from superb early European prints to exciting contemporary acquisitions. Te Papa's curators have selected more than 400 artworks, each one beautifully reproduced, and accompanied by an engaging mini essay. Works by international artists - from Rembrandt to Mapplethorpe - feature alongside iconic New Zealand art by Charles Goldie, Rita Angus, Bill Hammond, and many more. Lesser-known artworks will also surprise and delight. Art at Te Papa is a treasure to inform, inspire, and delight all New Zealanders and lovers of art. As well as the beautifully-produced standard edition, which includes 400 full-colour plates, Te Papa Press is pleased to confirm that Art at Te Papa is also available in a special limited edition of 300 hand-numbered hardback copies. First published April 2009.
