Howick Library is thrilled to welcome Christopher Johnstone, former Director of the Auckland Art Gallery, as he discusses his recently reissued book Landscape Paintings of New Zealand: A Journey from North to South.

When Landscape Paintings of New Zealand was first published in 2006 it was hailed by a reviewer as “New Zealand art history made accessible, yet still full of scholarship and insight.” The book has now been reissued with 32 new paintings joining the 103 of the original edition, and was recently included in the Times Literary Supplement’s list of “books of the year.”

Christopher was Director of the Auckland Art Gallery from 1988 until 1995 and responsible for the major Picasso exhibitions in 1989, the record-breaking Rembrandt to Renoir in 1993 and Paul Gaugin: Pages from the Pacific, and the establishment of the former NEW Gallery in 1995.

Light refreshments will be served and copies of the book will be available for purchase.
