PROVENANCE Private collection, Auckland LITERATURE Paul Dibble (Auckland 2001) p. 25, p.112-113

Defining the Homeland 1999…Tall and seemingly unassailable, this large, well crafted bronze could be interpreted as that rare thing, the female heroic figure - a watchful and assertive guardian of a land with a complex and contested cultural heritage. While recalling the heroism of New Zealand commemorative sculpture of old, it looks beyond notions of civic virtue and political power. Instead, Dibble suggests another kind of sculptural tradition for New Zealand, one that focuses on this country’s artistic heritage. His work can be read by everyone and thus remains as democratic as its Victorian predecessors.’ Dorothea Pauli, ‘Moving Forward, Looking Back. Paul Dibble and the Monumental Figure’, Paul Dibble (Auckland 2001) p. 112

‘This painting began life as Lord of the Feasts. When I painted the St Francis paintings I was still a practicing Catholic. By the time I painted this I had abandoned formal religion, but not the concept of spirituality. This painting began as a rendering of an old wino I saw lying in oblivion in Wellington. As I painted him he began to glow; the light started to come out of his face. He showed me the possibility of sainthood in an ordinary man - St Francis in mufti and ecstasy. The mynah bird is both a predatory element and a prophetic aspect of the sleeper’s dream.’ Michael Smither Gribben, Michael Smither Painter, 2004, p. 154

27 Ralph Hotere (1931-2013) Green lacquer on corrugated iron with cast pewter mountings signed and dated ‘Hotere/Port Chalmers/’97’ and inscribed with title to the reverse of each panel each panel 200 x 85.5cm; overall 200 x 175.5cm $100,000 - 150,000 PROVENANCE Private collection, Auckland Our eyes slide down the dark dark grey (charcoal) iron sheet, as if over a rippled sea with its peaks and troughs, and we almost fall through it. At first it seems vague, this spacious flatness, or rather neutral without real colour, volume without veneer, but soon it begins to possess qualities, signs and life. The descent of our eyes down each sheet of corrugated iron, like slipping down the incline of a newly corrugated roof, occurs as if we were waiting for that moment when a tongue would peel back, like the lid of a sardine can, to catch our fall, revealing a verdant underbelly, green as a spring leaf or a Granny Smith apple. A world otherwise revealed resplendent in a gash. As our eyes sink and glide down each wrinkly panel surface in a sort of fascination they are also caught, inveigled, by a cobwebby filigree of delicate plant-like forms (tiny fern fronds?) that race through the iron almost eating their way forward like etching acid. Then we notice that the upper and lower edges of each corrugated iron sheet are fixed to a support by beaten lead head nails, like little silver humming magnets stuck to a charcoal refrigerator door. Further footholds for our descent, these nail heads are cast mementoes of small objects given to the artist by his friends, they function like the small ex votos of beaten metal one finds in Italian churches, banal and stereotypical in character, humdrum in their mediocrity, but potent in psychic efficacy and private memory. Now standing back from the whole composition, we perceive that the two rippled surfaces of iron are deliberately juxtaposed (a diptych) to concoct a cruciform shape that hovers ephemerally before our eyes. A conjured shape that in its proportions reminds us of Hotere’s shiny black, reflective lacquered paintings of the 1970s, each featuring a perfectly centred, full-length, sharp, coloured slit-like cross. Corrugated iron, invented in England in 1830, introduced into New Zealand in 1850 (it ‘roofed’ the first New Zealand Parliament in 1852), and now regarded as iconic kiwiana, has over the course of his career been framed, painted, lacquered, scratched, sanded, burnished, and scored by Ralph Hotere. Now that Hotere himself has become something of a New Zealand icon, it seems fitting, as writer Geoff Chapple maintains, that behind all the familiar New Zealand icons lies “the unremitting ripple of corrugated iron”.

28 Gottfried Lindauer (1839-1926) Hamiora Maioha oil on canvas signed ‘G. Lindauer’ (lower left) 60 x 50cm $65,000 - 85,000 PROVENANCE Purchased by the vendor’s father, McKearneys, Hastings 1974 Private collection, Hawkes Bay

Gottfried Lindauer (1839-1926), along with Charles F Goldie was New Zealand’s best known painter of Maori subjects in the late nineteenthearly twentieth centuries. Bohemian by birth, Lindauer trained as an artist at the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna, where he established a successful career as a portrait painter. Emigrating to New Zealand in 1874, Lindauer initially settled in Nelson. A move to Auckland in the mid 1870s however proved crucial. It was there he met prominent businessman and collector Henry Partridge (1848-1931), who was to become his lifelong patron. Partridge commissioned Lindauer to depict numerous portraits of eminent Maori, both living and deceased, as well as large-scale depictions of re-enactments of traditional Maori life and customs over a period of 30 years. Partridge’s aim was to create a pictorial history of Maori at a time when it was widely believed that Maori were dying literally and as a distinct cultural group. The interpretation of Lindauer’s portraits has varied enormously, depending on the viewers socio-cultural contexts. For many colonial Europeans the portraits represented a supposed vanishing Maori culture, as well as being important ethnographic documents providing a valuable record of Maori physiognomy, moko, dress and arefacts. For many Maori, especially the families and descendants of those portrayed, his portraiture was interpreted in an entirely different light. They were viewed and still are to this day, as embodiments of the presence, spirit and mana of the subject, a link between the past and present, and as taonga that need to be protected. As such Lindauer was held in extremely high regard within the Maori community and his mutual respect can be seen in his sensitive handling of his Maori subjects. It is also suggestive of the sympathy and empathy that he as an outsider, a Czech artist in a predominantly Anglo European population understood. The present work is most likely a private commission for the sitters family. Although the identity of the sitter is not recorded, the work is entitled Hamiora Maioha. It is most likely a depiction of either Hamiora Wiremu Maioha (1888 - 1963) of Ngai Tawake hapu of Nga Puhi, resident of the Bay of Islands or Hamiora Te Maioha (1864 - 1929) born Waimate North, Northland, New Zealand on 25 Jan 1864 to Hoani Maioha and Margaret Makere Farley.

Alexander Young Jackson CC CMG (Canadian, 1882–1974) studied at the Conseil des arts et manufactures, Montréal with Edmond Dyonnet. After a brief period as a graphic artist for a lithograph company in Chicago, Young fought in the First World War. Injured in 1916, he continued service as an official Canadian war artist (1917-1919). Returning to Canada in 1919, Jackson and six fellow artists - Franklin Carmichael, Lawren Harris, Frank Johnston, Arthur Lismer, J E H MacDonald and Frederick Varley formed the Group of Seven (19191930). The group was renowned for its paintings inspired by the Canadian landscape, believing that a distinct style of Canadian art could be developed through direct contact with nature. This was considered bold at the time, as the Canadian wilderness had previously been considered too rugged to be painted, hence initiating the first major Canadian national art movement. The Group was succeeded by the Canadian Group of Painters in the 1933 of which Jackson was again a founding member. In addition to his work with the Group of Seven, his long career included teaching at the Banff School of Fine Arts (1943-1949). In his later years he was artist-in-residence at the McMichael Gallery in Kleinberg, Ontario.

Bensemann begun Wainui I in 1974 and only later finished the work in 1977 and is one of only two works he completed of Wainui. He held the work in high regard commenting in a letter to his daughter Caroline and her husband Paul Otto in January 1974: ‘My dear Caroline and Paul, …I am leaving Nelson on Saturday and may not get another chance to send you (both) loving greetings from this most beautiful place…I came over a week ago last Saturday and the days have melted away in swimming, eating, sleeping and quite a lot of doog painting. In fact I have been painting very well for some reason I cannot understand because I arrived here a worn out nervous wreck…I started a biggish painting of the headland on the other side of Wainui Inlet and am terribly pleased with it - it alone had made the trip up here worthwhile. Something like this: The pretty little island is crowned with vivid green bush and is called Taupo. Out on the horizon you can just see Farewell Spit float like a mirage on a cerulean sea. The hills are olive green and brown gold and the great sweeping golden beach shatters in the right hand corner into Maori fish-hook shapes. Don’t think I will sell this one…’ Otto, Leo Bensenmann: Landscapes & Studies, p. 81.

New Zealand war artist Peter McIntyre’s remarkable working drawing for The Breakthrough: Minqar, Qa’im records his immediate impression of the Second New Zealand Expeditionary Force’s (2NZEF) breach of its confinement by General Erwin Rommel’s troops in the cliffs above Mersa Matruh in Egypt in June 1942. The 2NZEF has returned to Egypt from Syria, following Rommel’s infiltration of the allied lines and fears for his occupation of Egypt. However, although anticipating support from the 1st Armoured Division, the 2NZEF became quickly encircled by Rommel’s forces and confined in Minqar Qa’im. Lacking in tank support, the 2NZEF decided to strike against the German line, surprising its blockage towards midnight, relying on its infantry to force the breakthrough with rifles and grenades. As they advanced, the 2NZEF’s trucks followed, shelled from both sides by the startled German forces. McIntyre recalled these events when he toured New Zealand as official war artist in1943: ‘There were streams of fire coming from both sides when the Division started to break its way through. The Maori driver of Captain McIntyre’s truck pulled his tin hat down over his eyes and went for his life.’ The war against Rommel in the North African desert presented McIntyre and other war artists with a very different environment to that of the First World War. British war artists faced many problems working in these conditions and both Edward Bawden and Edward Ardizonne admitted that they had trouble adjusting to the vast indefinite desert spaces. McIntyre, however, appears to have responded favourably, appreciating the landscape’s

potential for dramatic contrasts and distinctions between shadow and light, and day and night. Certainly, this sense of drama is evident in his drawing for The Breakthrough: Minqar Qa’im, and was refined even further in the finished painting, now held in Archives New Zealand war art collection (refer image below). McIntyre’s confidence in astutely capturing a fluctuating chiaroscuro of fire and flames against the dead of night was no accident. From his arrival in North Africa in 1941 he had frequently observed the 2NZEF, describing their movements travelling at night. He recalled: ‘It was a fantastic sight, one of the great spectacles of the war, as the entire New Zealand Division advanced across the desert in a huge pall of dust. ‘ Moreover, this initial record of the attack provided an insight into his working methods as an artist. The editing of the damaged tank in the immediate foreground and narrowing of the view of the convoy in the finished painting, accelerates the urgency and movement of the vehicles and their insistence in ensuring that they escape captivity. McIntyre later generously recalled: ‘I think my 2 1/2 years in the Western Desert with the New Zealand Division were the best times in my whole life in the company of men. Do you know what I mean? To me the New Zealand Division in those days was a superb thing. Men at their best in extraordinary circumstances.’ Dr Warren Feeney PHD, Masters Thesis on Peter McIntyre’s War Art, Canterbury University, 1995

Born in Russia, Chevalier arrived in Melbourne in 1855 becoming an illustrator for Melbourne Punch and exploring different parts of the region with his friend and fellow artist Eugene von Guerard. In 1865 Chevalier moved to New Zealand. In 1869 Chevalier left Australasia on the royal yacht Galatea in the company of the Duke of Edinburgh. Chevalier had been a member of the entourage for His Royal Highness’s tour of Victoria and Tasmania that began in 1867. Galatea sailed the Pacific and Indian oceans for a year, providing the artist with rich and exotic scenery that inspired his work for years to come. The present work, set in Opunohu Bay was completed on this tour and is a study for Chevalier’s masterpiece Race to the market, Tahiti, 1880, which currently hangs in Art Gallery of New South Wales, Australia.

In August 1892 Nerli visited Apia, Samoa where he met and painted Robert Louis Stevenson, producing portraits in oil, pastel and charcoal, one of which hangs in the Scottish National Portrait Gallery. A notice in the Samoa Times of 27 August 1892 outlined his plans: ‘By the Lubeck last trip there arrived in Samoa Signor Nerli, an Italian artist. It is the intention of this gentleman to reproduce, principally in oils, some of our magnificent scenery, and also to make some portraits of the Samoan natives, which he proposes to exhibit at the Sydney Exhibition. Signor Nerli informs us that he is prepared to undertake private commissions.’ Nerli produced a number quantity of plein air watercolour sketches in Samoa, a number of which show Stevenson’s house and environs. This previously unrecorded large oil is a notable addition to this rare and much sought after series of work.
