Grahame Sydney is one of New Zealand’s major artists, famous for his quintessential and exquisitely rendered paintings of Central Otago and the South.

This book contains over 200 paintings from Sydney’s 40-year career, including all of his best-known landscapes, his figure paintings, and his highly distinctive paintings of buildings and their interiors.

The book opens with a perceptive and finely turned account by the artist of his childhood in Dunedin and the beginnings of his obsession with art, and an essay from New Zealand’s Poet Laureate and a man of letters, Vincent O’Sullivan, who writes insightfully and lyrically about Sydney’s work.

A landmark publication, this book captures magnificently the scale and significance of Grahame Sydney’s contribution to New Zealand art and culture.
