From the 1870s to the early twentieth century, the Bohemian immigrant artist Gottfried Lindauer travelled to marae and rural towns around New Zealand and - commissioned by Maori and Pakeha - captured ... in paint the images of key Maori figures. For Maori then and now, the faces of tupuna are full of mana and life. Now this definitive book on Lindauer's portraits of the ancestors collects that work for New Zealanders. The book presents 67 major portraits and 8 genre paintings alongside detailed accounts of the subject and work, followed by essays by leading scholars that take us inside Lindauer and his world: from his artistic training in Bohemia to his travels around New Zealand as Maori and Pakeha commissioned him to paint portraits; his artistic techniques and deep relationship with photography; Henry Partridge's gallery of Lindauer works on Queen Street in Auckland where Maori visited to see their ancestors; and the afterlife of the paintings in marae and memory. For Maori, the faces that look out from Lindauer's portraits are tribal leaders and family members. They are tohunga and politicians. They are ancestors and friends. Gottfried Lindauer met Maori tupuna at the most basic level of human connection by capturing their likeness. This book returns the ancestors and the artist to the people. Published in association with Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki Accompanying exhibition The Maori Portraits: Gottfried Lindauer's New Zealand was on show at Auckland Art Gallery from 22 October 2016 to 19 February 2017.
