In the 1770s William Hodges painted a Maori family in front of a cascading waterfall. This exhibition explores the influence his romantic picture of the new land has had on landscape painting and on generations of New Zealand artists.

Between 1772 and 1775 artist William Hodges accompanied Captain Cook aboard the HMS Resolution on Cook’s second visit to New Zealand. At Dusky Sound, Hodges painted a Maori family in front of a cascading waterfall. His romantic picture of the new land has had a seminal effect on landscape painting and on generations of New Zealand artists including Colin McCahon, Mark Adams and Christine Hellyar.

Entry to the exhibition is included with general admission to the museum.

Prices: Adult $12.50, Child $5.50, Family (1 adult & 3 children) $17, Family (2 adults & 3 children) $29.
