Abstract

Augustus Earle (1793-1838) visited New Zealand during October 1827 and May 1828. He was the first trained artist to visit New Zealand and reside for any length of time among the Northland Maori. His paintings, those that survived a fire in Australia in May 1828, form a remarkable commentary on early New Zealand. They not only depict the beauty of the country but also his appreciation of the Maori, whom he much admired. This is his sketch of Kororareka Beach.
