Summary "From the 1870s to the early twentieth century, Bohemian immigrant artist Gottfried Lindauer travelled to marae, rural towns and cities in Aotearoa New Zealand, where he gained a reputation for capturing the likeness of his Māori subjects. This definitive book, coming from a deeply Māori perspective, brings together Lindauer's remarkable portraits - presenting 75 major works and detailed accounts of the subjects of the portraits and the origin of the images. For Māori, the faces that look out from Lindauer's portraits are tribal leaders, ancestors and family members. This book honours these subjects and Lindauer's legacy."--Back cover
