As well as his sought after range of limited edition original screenprints we also stock a collection of open edition reproduction prints of some of NZ's favourite Smither paintings such as "Rocks With Mountain". For collectors of Smither's prints it was super exciting that in October 2019 Smither's painting "Sea Wall and Kingfisher" sold for $342,000 at an auction at the International Art Centre in Parnell, Auckland - thereby setting a record price for a painting by a living New Zealand artist.
