Description of this Book

This book is a catalogue to accompany the exhibition of work donated to Auckland City by Julian and Josie Roberson. Each page features a full plate of one of the 15 works. Take a rare opportunity to glimpse into the private art collection of American philanthropists Julian and Josie Robertson, and view extraordinary work by some of the major European artists, from Dali to Derain, Matisse to Mondrian. Inspired by a six-month business trip to Auckland, the Robertsons began their love affair with New Zealand in 1979. Thirty years later, and with an enduring relationship established, they announced a significant gift of European modernist works to the Auckland Art Gallery - the largest gift ever made to an Australasian art gallery.
