Grahame Sydney is regarded as one of New Zealand's major artists. He is best known for his magnificent landscapes of Central Otago, many of which hang in public and private collections throughout New Zealand and the western world. His paintings have been gifted to Nelson Mandela, bought by Elton John and Sam Neill, and the New Zealand iconic, Rossie at Pisa, now hangs in Te Papa Tongarewa. The Art of Grahame Sydney is a comprehensive survey of one of New Zealand's best-loved artists. Chosen from paintings produced over thirty years, this selection shows Sydney's enormously varied body of work: the luminous skies of Central Otago, his magnificent portraits, figure studies, still lifes, drawings, lithographs and etchings. The images are complemented by a brief autobiographical outline of Sydneys early art development, a personal response from poet Brian Turner, essays from Michael Findlay and Belinda Jones and an extended interview with the artist. Included are over 143 reproductions, several photographs and a list of the artworks, exhibition history and biographical notes. The Art of Grahame Sydney won the Montana Book of the Year Award, as well as the Reader's Choice Award when it was first published. The fourth reprint of this popular title is refreshed with a stunning new jacket and a Bronze Premium Bestseller sticker. It makes the perfect gift or presentation book: excellent for weddings, graduations, or as an iconic gift to send overseas. The Art of Grahame Sydney pays tribute to the works of one of New Zealand's best-loved artists.
