Description of this Book

Imagine standing in front of a beautiful work of art listening to the curator talk intimately about it. Experience the movement of the painter's brushstrokes, the glinting surface of
a glass sculpture, the almost-hidden detail of a Dutch master. 101 brings the art experience to the page.
In this large, beautifully presented book, Christchurch Art Gallery showcases 101 treasures from its collection-paintings, drawings, sculpture, film and photographs that stand out in a line-up of
New Zealand's most significant collected works.
Enjoy thoughtful, conversational texts by Lara Strongman, Ken Hall, Felicity Milburn, Nathan Pohio, Peter Vangioni and Jenny Harper-written to feel as if the reader is standing with the curator in front of the painting. Also includes insightful interviews with artists and curators.
Designed by award-winning artist and designer Aaron Beehre,
