Angels & Aristocrats: Early European art in New Zealand public collections.

Angels & Aristocrats showcases five centuries of European art, drawn from New Zealand’s finest public collections.

This major exhibition features paintings by Brueghel the Younger, Hobbema, Reynolds, Gainsborough, Turner, and many more. The works depict subjects ranging from the Madonna and Child to the hurly-burly of village fairs – and open a window onto the lives of people of every class.

The exhibition’s curator and author of the accompanying book, Mary Kisler, has worked with staff at Te Papa to bring a striking and unique version of the show to Wellington, featuring 12 extra paintings and exquisite period furniture from Te Papa’s collections.
