Robin White


Dame Robin White (1946- ) is one of NZ's most important printmakers of the late twentieth century (and reputed to be a pretty good painter too!). A graduate of Auckland's Elam School of Fine Arts she worked as a teacher intially, learning to screenprint (more commonly called silkscreens at the time) while she lived in Paremata and then Dunedin where some of her most famous prints were completed. White's prints now regularly acheive some of the highest prices at auction for NZ prints. At this time we have no original Robin White prints for sale at New Zealand Fine Prints, however please contact us if you are looking for a particular edition and we will let you know as soon as we have it in stock again in the future. The print shown here is a very good quality reproduction of her famous 1973 painting “Mangaweka”.

Recently Dame Robin kindly granted permission to NZ Art Print News to re-print a fascinating interview that she gave in 1981 about how she learned to make prints.
