Colin McCahon: Is This The Promised Land?, Vol. II 1960–1987

Auckland University Press

Peter Simpson

The second of an extraordinary two-volume work chronicling forty-five years of Colin McCahon’s life and work. Colin McCahon (1919–1987) was New Zealand’s greatest twentieth-century artist. Through landscapes, biblical paintings and abstraction, the introduction of words and Māori motifs, McCahon’s work came to define a distinctly New Zealand modernist idiom. Collected and exhibited extensively in Australasia and Europe, McCahon’s work has not been assessed as a whole for thirty-five years.
