Modern Paints Aotearoa

Author(s): Sarah L Hillary

New Zealand

Modern Paints Aotearoa presents major new research that explores the relationship between artistic innovation and painting materials in New Zealand during the mid-20th century. New synthetic paints provided liberation from earlier painting methods and were taken up with enthusiasm by many of New Zealand’s best-known artists. Illustrated essays reveal the significance of modern materials and the cultural influence of America on many of the developments that revitalised New Zealand painting in the late 1950s to early 1970s.
