Lot Details

ink brush drawing on paper, signed in brush point lower right, signed. 195 x 122mm. Provenance: Ex Spence collection, Auckland. Note: T A McCormack was one of New Zealand’s first full time painters and one whose career matured almost solely in this country. Except for the 8 months he spent in Australia in 1928 he never left New Zealand. His early years were spent in Napier but by the end of 1921 he had set up a studio in Wellington working as a watercolourist. Residing in Wellington for over 40 years, McCormack worked from the Hill Street studio formerly occupied by D K Richmond which became a focal point for other artists. (Ferner Gallery)
