            Jill Trevelyan won the Non Fiction Award at the Montana New Zealand Book Awards in 2009 for this magnificent biography of one of New Zealands leading 20th century artists. Now back in print, this revised edition brings the book up to date with new assessments of Angus and in the ...context of the big Royal Academy show that opens in London in November 2020. Rita Angus was a pioneer of modern painting during the 1930s and 1940s. More than 100 years after her birth, works such as Rutu (1951), Central Otago (1940), and Portrait of Betty Curnow (19411942) are national icons. While Angus is perhaps New Zealands best-loved painter, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before this acclaimed and revelatory book. Jill Trevelyan traces Anguss life, from her childhood in Napier and Palmerston North to her death in Wellington in 1970. Drawing on a wealth of archives and letters, she brings to life Rita Angus the person: highly articulate and full of zest, intellectually curious and forthright in her attitudes and emotions, powerfully committed to her pacifist and feminist beliefs and dedicated, above all, to life as an artist. Rita Angus: An Artists Life is generously illustrated with more than 150 artworks and private photographs to bring Angus her private struggles and public reputation and her greatest legacy, her art to complex, colourful life.

            Looking for a New Country: Christopher Perkins in New Zealand
             

            Looking for a New Country: Christopher Perkins in New Zealand (Paperback)

            Renowned as a vivid personality, British artist Christopher Perkins helped lay the foundations for modern art in New Zealand, producing a well-known body of landscape paintings as well as some of the most striking portraits of his era. This is the first publication to fully asses...s and document his contribution to New Zealand art history. It features new writing by art historians who offer fresh appraisals of Perkins and his work, together with a comprehensive anthology of historical documents written by and about the artist, from the 1930s to the 1990s. 'Looking for a new country' - Christopher Perkins in New Zealand is also a record of the 2019 exhibition of the same title at Victoria University of Wellington's Adam Art Gallery Te Pataka Toi, which brought together more than thirty of his paintings and drawings made in response to the five years he spent in New Zealand between 1929 and 1933. Asking why local art writers created a place for Perkins in their national canon, this is both an invaluable resource on the artist and a timely tool to critically reflect on the nature of the discipline of art history in Aotearoa New Zealand.
