Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
TE MATA: THE ETHNOLOGICAL PORTRAIT is an important new addition to the analysis of portraiture in a New Zealand context, authored by leading colonial art historian Roger Blackley. Based on an exhibition at the Adam Art Gallery, Victoria University of Wellington in 2008, this publication offers a fascinating reading of a unique but little-known series of Maori portrait busts, now languishing in a storeroom at Te Papa, that were created in 1908 by the itinerant Anglo-Australian sculptor Nelson Illingworth. In an essay based on intensive new research, Blackley considers the history and function of these turn-of-the-century depictions within an ethnological and art historical frame.
Published to document the exhibition 'Te Mata : the ethnological portrait', 26 July-25 October 2008.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 35-37).
