AKATARAWA RIVER (UPPER WAIKANAE)

Henry Moreland Gore

UHPC 1/25, Oil, 428mm (h) x 510mm(w)

Light is the subject of this painting done in a decorative ensemble of blues, greys and ochre, with the figure of the fisherman seeming to dissolve into the river. Indeed, Gore was busy in 1896. Not only did he represent New Zealand in tennis, but he also worked fulltime as a Parliamentary Hansard staff member.
