The evolution of New Zealand's national art collection is closely linked with the story of Aotearoa New Zealand itself – its places, its people, and its developing sense of identity. Art at Te Papa spans the Museum’s collection from superb early European prints to exciting contemporary acquisitions. Te Papa’s curators have selected more than 400 artworks, each one beautifully reproduced and accompanied by an engaging mini essay. Works by international artists – from Rembrandt to Mapplethorpe – feature alongside iconic New Zealand art by Charles Goldie, Rita Angus, Bill Hammond, and many more. Lesser-known artworks will also surprise and delight. Art at Te Papa is a treasure to inform, inspire, and delight all New Zealanders and lovers of art.
