Artist Max Gimblett occupies a unique position in the history of contemporary New Zealand art. An expatriate who has made New York his home for the past thirty years, Gimblett has remained thoroughly committed to the New Zealand art scene, with regular exhibitions in this country throughout this period. Gimblett's paintings are held in major collections, both private and public, around the world. This book is the first major publication on Max Gimblett - both the artist and his work. With around 100 reproductions of this work, and essays by writer and curator Wynstan Curnow and New York based writer John Yau, this publication is invaluable to anyone interested in Gimblett's work and in contemporary art practise.
