This is the maquette for the monumental sculpture ‘Pacific Monarch’ situated outside the Manawatu Art Gallery, Palmerston North. The sculpture is Dibble’s first completed public commission unveiled in 1992. Pacific Monarch or Papaioea as it is otherwise known, translates to ‘there are beauties here’, has a complexity of meaning to match the hybrid nature of New Zealand culture. The crown of leaves‚ alludes to ceremonial head-dresses of some Pacific cultures as well as to the green men of Celtic mythology. The blindfold represents the ignorance: of many settlers to the true nature of the New Zealand environment when they immigrated. The plum-bob signifies the European intent to settle permanently. The globe and barnacles on the stern-like thighs symbolise the long voyage and transportation of cultural values and ideas from the Old World to the New World. Paul Dibble (Bateman, 2001) p. 71.

Painted in 1964, this little known portrait depicts the artist’s friend, Australian-born Wellington artist, Kate Coolahan. The work was bought by its current owner in the 1980s and is previously an undocumented work, not included in any of the books or survey exhibitions of her work, and reflects her interest in portraiture, especially portraits of women. Early on in her career, Rita was typecast as a landscape artist, but by the 1960s she had painted a significant number of portraits including her Pacific goddesses—portraits of female deities who embodied ‘the new and vigorous country’ 1 she felt that artists must represent in painting. The subject of this portrait, Kate Coolahan, moved to Wellington from Sydney in 1952 to work as an illustrator for an advertising company. She had trained as an artist in Australia, and in New Zealand would later become known for her prints and paper-making. But her primary contribution to the city’s avant garde circles at this time was through her involvement in the Architectural Centre Gallery. Rita may have met Kate on one of her trips to Australia and this acquaintance was probably renewed once Kate was living in Wellington. In 1963, Rita had back problems and for a period was unable to paint. To remain connected to the Wellington art world, she took up the role of programme convenor at the Architectural Centre Gallery. She had begun exhibiting with the Gallery in 1957 and continued to exhibit there till the late sixties. It is likely her friendship with Kate blossomed during this time, and Rita may even have encouraged the younger woman to join the Gallery, or would in any case have approved of her involvement. As Jill

Trevelyan notes in her 2008 book “When it came to dealing with the generation of art professionals who emerged in the 1960s, Rita tended to be wary, especially if they were young, male, and seemed to challenge her ability to control her work…” 2 Kate is painted here as a beautiful serious young woman in stylish glasses with high cheekbones and a sense of purpose. Her hair is severely pulled back into a bun and her eyes which look directly at the viewer, are blank and unsmiling. It’s as though Rita doesn’t want to pander to conventional ideas of feminine beauty. Kate wears a green jersey painted with deep valleys and gullies. Around her neck, like a kind of rose garden is a floral scarf knotted at the front. Behind her is the horizon of a brown couch like the ridge-line of mountain range. Above the couch and behind her head is the blue wall of a notional room, but it’s more like a skycape with hints of clouds and changing weather. And Kate is positioned in the middle of the painting dominating it with her large triangular mountain shape and her landscape colours. It’s a very curious painting. Is Rita drawing a now well-worn parallel between women and nature and the landscape? Or is she, as I prefer to think, painting Kate as some sort of dependable and monumental rock? We’ll never know but regardless, this is another wonderful portrait by Rita Angus that pushes at the edges of what the conventional portrait format can express. Mary-Jane Duffy 1 Rita Angus: An Artist’s Life, Te Papa Press, 2008, p211. 2 As above, p319.

27 Rita Angus (1908-70) Portrait of Sue, aged 4 oil on canvas board signed ‘RITA ANGUS’ (lower right) 43 x 36cm $100,000 - $200,000 Provenance Collection of direct descendant of the artist

Rita Angus (1908-1970) is a significant and much-loved New Zealand artist who pioneered a local brand of Modernist painting. A mural based on one of her self-portraits has recently been completed in Bond Street, Wellington, as testament to the esteem in which she is still held. Her output includes numerous landscapes and portraits in the traditional manner often in oils but she was also a skilful watercolourist. She studied at the Canterbury College School of Art in Christchurch from 1927-29 under the tutelage of Archibald Nicoll, Cecil Kelly, Richard Wallwork and Leonard Booth, and exhibited for the first time at the Canterbury Society of Arts in 1930. She painted throughout her life supported by commercial work, some sales, and her family. This portrait of Rita’s niece, Sue, the daughter of her younger brother Alan Angus, is an example of the way that her family supported her with commissions. The portrait was painted when Sue was a young child and has remained in the family’s possession. It has never been publicly shown nor has it been included in the any of the books on Rita Angus. Sue is an oil painting in Rita’s signature style—a stylised kind of realism with nods to Cubism. This can especially be seen in the way Sue’s hair is painted. It is treated volumetrically with little detail except for the colour and the shape. The orange ribbon set on one side of her head is reminiscent of a butterfly or flower about to spring away or flap its petal wings. John Money recounted a conversation with the artist in which she told him that she ‘deliberately developed a style which cut out unnecessary detail, leaving the picture simple and clear cut. Her idea was that ours is a new and vigorous country and our art should reflect this.’ 1

Sue has a look of quiet absorption dominates her face as she seems to listen to the sounds inside the shell. Her eyes look off to one side of the viewer and her lips are pursed in concentration. Her right arm holding the shell floats above her dress, the blue of which perfectly matches her eyes. And the dress itself is quite magnificent. Rita has painted the folds and gathers of the garment but with no real sense of a child’s body beneath it. Instead these folds and gathers are made to look like waves or water. This treatment enlivens the painting with its static background and contrasts to the stillness of the listening child suggesting her rich imaginary life and the watery origins of the shell she holds to her ear. Rita was fond of this sort of symbolism especially with regard to her portraits and self-portraits. And it’s characteristic of her uncompromising commitment to her practice, that even in painting a portrait of her niece, she didn’t miss the opportunity to explore her painting interests which are both formal and thematic. Collectors and lovers of Rita Angus’ work will be thrilled by the opportunity to view this wonderful portrait. It is another fine example of her superb portraiture and the great contribution she made to the development of painting in Aotearoa New Zealand. Mary-Jane Duffy

Provenance with Canterbury Gallery Private collection, South Island

In 1985 Trevor Moffitt started to extensively research the West Coast Mass Murderer, Stanley Graham, who killed seven people in October 1941. This included Home Guardsman Gregory Hutchison and four policemen. Along with reading extensive reference material, Moffitt visited Hokitika and all of the relevant sites involved in the shootings. The resulting series produced in 1986-87, consisted of 51 oil paintings which chronicled Graham’s lifestyle leading up to the shootings, his time on the run, in hiding and the tragic events themselves. Describing what is arguably his most iconic series, Moffitt stated ‘I felt an empathy for him. Things were stacked up against him. The narrative was important - how Graham was and how his life got out of control. The lessons of the man are still to be learnt - that lack of communication leads to violence in society.’ Alison Gregor, Christchurch Star, 17 December 1987

Heaphy arrived in New Zealand in 1839 as a 19-yearold New Zealand Company draughtsman, and later became a surveyor and well-known artist. In 1846 he and Thomas Brunner made an epic trek from Nelson down the Buller River and the West Coast as far as Arahura - and back again. As provincial surveyor, Heaphy helped survey the military road from Auckland to the Waikato River in the early 1860s. The volunteer officer was then appointed ‘Military Surveyor and Guide to the Forces’. As chief surveyor to the central government, Heaphy spent the next two years surveying confiscated land in Waikato. He served as MP for Parnell, and then became commissioner of native reserves.

‘A selection of quilts by Malcolm Harrison provides a point of departure for the exhibition. These works are rendered in a visual language at once generous and playfully coy, and demonstrate the artist’s skill as a storyteller. The quilts locate Harrison within a community of friends and lovers, and prompt a critical re-examination of the ways the artist navigated his identity, politics and sexuality through a complex and often contradictory aesthetic and sensory vocabulary.’ http://dowse.org.nz/exhibitions/detail/sleepingarrangements

D UN B AR S L O A NE

Painted while Robyn Kahukiwa was living at Elsdon and teaching art at Mana College, Porirua from 1972-1982. Black Madonna and Maori Couple Resting spring from Kahukiwa’s particular experience as a Maori, a woman and a mother in a flat highly stylised manner. Such iconographic depictions of mother and child are a recurrent theme in her work. Atypical of her work during the early 1970’s, it illustrates an empathy with the young Maori of her local environment and their sense of alienation and cultural dislocation. Her distinct aim was to publicly address the pressure placed upon a new generation of indigenous people as the outcome of the colonial process. Kahukiwa’s work establishes her identity as Maori, while rediscovering the past and heritage she shares with her whanaunga. Through defining her own place in society she speaks to all New Zealanders of our land, our people and our identity.

The Christchurch Memorial Returned & Services Association WWII War Murals Dunbar Sloane Ltd is proud to announce the sale of these five murals commissioned for the CHCH RSA in 1941.

The Press published the following announcement on the unveiling of the murals on 17 June 1941: Mural for Union Jack Club

Due to the size of these works and the lack of suitable display space in the new home of the CHCH RSA post 2011 earthquakes, the RSA is regrettably unable to retain the works and made the difficult decision to sell the murals. Whilst the CHCH RSA building was destroyed in the February 2011 earthquake, fortunately the murals were all off site undergoing restoration and were thankfully spared any harm. These patriotic murals, depicting the might of the British & New Zealand armed forces on land, sea and sky, were originally commissioned in 1941 for the Union Jack Club. This was the Army, Navy and Airforce Club, a recreation centre for off-duty servicemen and women, which was above Pannell’s shoe store in Cashel Street.. Richard Wallwork painted one mural with assistance from Colin Lovell-Smith, who had served during the First World War, and a second by William A. Sutton. Wallwork at the time was the director of Canterbury College School of Art (later University of Canterbury School of Fine Art); Lovell-Smith a tutor and Sutton a recently graduated student, and later tutor. All three are important figures in the Canterbury School of Art and the artistic landscape of the city, to which they were all fully committed. Due to wartime shortages, the greatest problem facing the three artists was the lack of support material. Eventually linoleum was used to paint the 1.2 x 10-metre mural.

A mural painting, 35ft long and 5ft 3in high, was unveiled in the Union Jack Club by his Worship the Mayor, Mr E. H. Andrews, last night. The painting, which vividly depicts the activities of the three fighting services, was done by three members of the School of Art, Messrs R. Wallwork, C. Lovell-Smith, and W. S. Sutton. It took six months to complete. Unveiling the painting, the Mayor said that sincere thanks were due to those who accomplished the work. It would adorn a club that was doing noble work. Other speakers were Mr J. Leslie Will and Mr R. Wallwork. Richard Wallwork (1882-1955) After attending the Royal College of Art, London, where he was highly decorated, Richard & his wife, fellow artist Elizabeth moved to NZ in 1911 where he was employed at Canterbury College School of Art. A tutor till 1927, he went on to the directorship from 1927-1946. In the early 1940s Wallwork had become a member of the Home Guard Force. When WWII ended he retired from his position as Director of the Art School, sensing a change of the old guard, making way for Colin Lovell-Smith’s directorship. The Union Jack murals were to be Wallwork’s last involvement with a major mural project however he had prepared a whole generation of young Canterbury artists, including Austen Deans and Russell Clark to continue this proud tradition.

Colin Lovell-Smith (1894-1961) Cantabrian Colin grew up in a household, shaped by a tradition of intellectual nonconformity and social reform. Colin was introduced to art through his father’s printing business, and in 1908 he won a scholarship from Riccarton School to the Canterbury College School of Art, where he was a full-time student in commercial art and general subjects in 1908–9 and then joined the family firm. He enlisted at the end of 1914, and served at Gallipoli with the New Zealand Expeditionary Force, and as a draughtsman to a survey company of the Corps of Royal Engineers on the Balkan front; from 1918 he was with the Corps of New Zealand Engineers in France. It was on his return to NZ in 1919 that he enrolled in painting classes at the School of Art under the tutelage of Richard Wallwork. In 1927 he was appointed as an instructor at the School of Art in general and commercial subjects, and later in 1945 as acting director, notably succeeding Wallwork as Director from 1947-60. William (Bill) Sutton (1917-200) One of Canterbury’s most acclaimed artists, William (Bill) Sutton studied at the Canterbury College School of Art under the tutelage of both Richard Wallwork and Colin Lovell-Smith, gaining his Diploma of Fine Arts in 1937. He too followed in his predecessors’ footsteps becoming a tutor in 1949, and later senior lecturer in 1959. In 1940 Sutton joined the Home Defence Corps, with lecturer Colin Lovell-Smith amongst others, this experience travelling around NZ, gave the artist valuable knowledge about the practicalities of life in NZ during the war.
