Author(s): Peter J Vangioni and Dieuwertje Dekkers
Petrus van der Velden is one of New Zealand's keystone artists, and this sumptuous publication brings together major examples of his ground-breaking Otira series from public and private lenders throughout New Zealand. It highlights the manner in which van der Velden's art has resonated throughout the twentieth and into the twenty-first century, and explores the fascination his Otira works continue to exert on art lovers and artists. This richly illustrated publication is a long overdue addition to the scholarship on a truly international artist.
