View from the top of NZ (House)

Seresin Estate is pleased to support the exhibition of works by Peter McIntyre OBE at Jonathan Grant Galleries in Parnell, opening on October 25th.

Peter McIntyre OBE is a New Zealand artist of distinction and renown. In the 30's he became known as one of New Zealand's most innovative artists and in 1941 was appointed New Zealand's official war artist serving directly under General Bernard Freyberg.

Having travelled extensively, the exhibition features many of McIntyre's favourite themes and locations - from rural New Zealand and abroad. Images of all the paintings can be seen on the gallery's website.

The image of McIntyre's work shown here, is Panorama of London with Trafalgar Square, St. Paul's and the Thames beyond from the rooftop of New Zealand House, 1963. (Hey, you can almost see Michael Seresin's house from here !)

The exhibition runs until November 12th.
