Book Description J M Mcgregor (NZ) Ltd, Auckland, 1985. Soft cover. Book Condition: Fair. 1st Edition. Elephant Folio - over 15 - 23" tall. Gottfried Lindauer (1839-1926), along with C.F. Goldie (1870-1947), was the most prolific and best-known painter of Maori subjects, in particular portraits, in the late nineteenth-early twentieth centuries. He was born in Pilsen, Bohemia, then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Despite his German-sounding surname, he was ethnically Czech and was initially named Bohumir. Lindauer's portraits of Maori are diverse in their subjects and in how he depicted them. They can be presented full-length, half-length or in bust format for instance; frontal, body in profile or face to the front, as in his many portraits of Ana Rupene and her baby. Besides his portraits of eminent Maori, he produced many of little-known or ordinary Maori people, most of whom wear European dress, as would have been the case in their daily life. Most, but not all, of these were probably commissioned by the sitters or their families. In contrast, in Lindauer's Maori portraits for European patrons, most of the subjects, but again not all, are shown in traditional and ceremonial Maori costume; markers of exotic difference to European viewers many of whom would have had little personal familiarity with such appearances. Malcolm MacGregor, Auckland, New Zealand, 1985. Book Condition: Fair. Taped spine. Loose plates. Its all there I have checked against our other copy. ( All the plates in fine condition. First Edition. Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall. Large elephant folio edition with glossy pictorial cover depicting a Maori mother and child. Stapled wraps with treated and canvas textured paper, with twelve amazing reproductions, mostly of Maori tribespeople. Biograhy of Lindauer, with full page color reproductins of his art, and lengthy commentary on each reproduced painting, which include a self portrait but mostly depict Maori Life, tattoos and clothing. 52 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 017778
