This catalogue is headlined by one of Gordon Walters finest ever ‘Koru’ paintings, Koru (1971), which bares the esteemed provenance of being acquired from the artist by legendary New Zealand art dealer, Peter McLeavey.

It is the largest ‘Koru’ painting the artist ever completed. Another highlight is one of Bill Hammond’s finest ‘Cave’ paintings, Signal Box: A Convocation of Eagles, Cave Painting No. 7.
