Peter McLeavey Book Launch & Webb's Important Paintings Preview: Auckland
Auckland book launch: Peter McLeavey: The life and times of a New Zealand art dealer

Webb’s has much pleasure in hosting the Auckland launch of Jill Trevelyan’s biography: Peter McLeavey: The life and times of a New Zealand art dealer. The book launch, which will coincide with the preview of Webb’s Important Paintings & Contemporary Art sale, will be held at Webb’s on Wednesday 20th October at 6pm.

Over the past half‐century, art dealer Peter McLeavey has befriended and championed a who’s who of New Zealand artists and for the first time, he has made his private papers available to award‐winning biographer Jill Trevelyan. From the rich sources of information in letters, diaries, exhibition files and in‐depth interviews, Jill Trevelyan has written Peter McLeavey: The life and times of a New Zealand art dealer.

The book offers insights into the artists McLeavey has represented for more than half a century including Colin McCahon, Toss Woollaston, Len Lye, Milan Mrkusich, Michael Smither, Gordon Walters, Michael Illingworth, Don Driver, Robin White, John Reynolds and Yvonne Todd.

Speakers on the night of the launch will include Jill Trevelyan, Olivia McLeavey, the book’s editor Odessa Owens, Te Papa Chief Executive Michael Houlihan, and artist John Reynolds. The author will be signing copies of the book on the night.

The evening will be catered with canapés by Toto and wines from Terra Sancta winery, Arrowtown.
