Kororareka in the Bay of Islands (oil painting (visual work); Conrad Martens (British painter, 1801-1878); 1841; Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Wellington, Welling...; 2002-0018-1)
Note: Kororaeka in the Bay of Islands was painted in Sydney, six years after Conrad Martens’ brief sojourn in the Bay of Islands, and is based on a pencil drawing in a sketchbook, Kororareka, Bay of Islands, 1834-36 (State Library of New South Wales). There are only minor differences between the on-the-spot sketch and the painting, chiefly the addition of the group of Maori standing on the left. This view from behind Kororareka looks across the town towards the bay, with the buildings of the pä and a thin line of European houses along the shoreline. One of three known New Zealand oils by Martens, this painting was first recorded as being in a private collection in Sydney in 1919, and was reproduced in 1920 in Lionel Lindsay’s book, Conrad Martens: The man and his art.
