Gottfried Lindauer


Gottfried Lindauer (1839-1926), a Bohemian, arrived in New Zealand in 1873. A professional artist, he travelled throughout the country as a protege of Henry Partridge, an Auckland businessman, who exhibited Lindauer's Maori portraits and members of early Colonial families. Lindauer frequently painted more than one version of a portrait, and occasionally worked from photographs. His most famous painting is perhaps Ana Rupene and Child. We stock all three Lindauer prints currently available. Update: In mid 2016 we found a small collection of older prints of Lindauer portraits of Maori subjects when a gallery closed down which have sold out really fast, today there are only 1 or 2 of the last two smaller $19.95 portraits on sale (8 July).
