Jonathan White’s New Zealand is the most significant book of NZ landscape paintings for more than a hundred years. Not since the colonial artists like Angas, Heaphy, Barraud and Gully has a NZ artist attempted such a representative portfolio of oil colours of NZ. Jonathan White continues the traditions set by the 19th century artists whose works are in demand throughout the world. Forty-one paintings of distinctly NZ scenes are included- 20 from each of the main islands and one from Stewart Island. Brief descriptive and historical texts by noted historian John Hall-Jones accompany each painting’ Lovely Book
