Author(s): Peter Siddell
Sir Peter Siddell's intricately detailed paintings of New Zealand urban scenes and landscapes that are not quite a replication of actuality are much loved and enduringly popular.
Both technical tours de force and rich with acute observation, they feature in all our national art collections and never fail to fascinate. This major book, the first to ever bring his work together, celebrates both Siddell's life and his art, with 150 images, and an essay by both Sir Peter himself and the renowned art historian Professor Michael Dunn.
Sir Peter Siddell has been painter since the 1970s and is one of this country's most highly regarded living artists. He lives in Auckand with his wife, the painter Sylvia Siddell.
