Full size print of this famous painting of Harbour Cone, a hill on Otago Peninsula a few kilometres from Dunedin city. This new print is one of a just released series of very large format giclee prints made to the original size of the original paintings by famous NZ artists. Robin White’s hard-edged paintings of rural New Zealand and its people are comparable with Don Binney’s and Michael Smither’s work, acknowledging their origins in the Regionalist movement paintings of the mid 20th century and the influence of artists such as Rita Angus. White also created a series of screenprints during the period that she painted “White Oystercatcher and Harbour Cone" - including a print of this painting - that have achieved some of the highest prices at auction for New Zealand prints. White graduated from the Elam School of Fine Arts (University of Auckland, New Zealand) in 1968 and quickly established a reputation with paintings of well known ‘culture heroes’ such as Sam Hunt (a poet and performer). Her work from 1968 to 1979 often depicted a single, isolated figure set against the landscape, and similarly to her Regionalist predecessors, the clarity and economy of her images celebrated the vitality of New Zealand’s rural culture and counter culture communities of the 1970s.
