For more than three decades after emigrating to New Zealand from England in 1851, Albin Martin (b. 1812 d. 1888) was a fixture in the colony’s fledgling art world.

Martin achieved renown as both a ‘father of art’ in the greater Auckland region, and as an evocative interpreter of upper North Island landscapes, including Waikato locations. As well as an artist, Martin was also a farmer and briefly a politician.

This exhibition features a selection of Martin’s oil paintings, watercolours and drawings. It situates his life and art within the context of colonial society and in relation to key contemporaries and mentors.

Education programmes are available for this exhibition.
