The first monograph of the New Zealand painter Peter Ireland - this book surveys his practice, on the theme of Captain Cook's voyages to the Pacific. Ireland's exquisite, detailed and enigmatic "history painting" is beautifully reproduced in this 100pp., spot varnished, offset re...production, to reflect the oil on paper originals. Coinciding with the 250th anniversary of the first sustained European contact with Aotearoa New Zealand, this book features 69 works from, mostly, Ireland's ongoing James Cook series and the associated Waitangi Wallpaper series, supported by a number of related works from his Curator, Panorama and continuing Sampler series. These series represent about one-third of his total art practice. Together, the images constitute a continuing conversation between historical characters and the events in which they figured, interweaving our national history with European painting traditions.
