Te Reinga, Falls of the Wairoa. Hawke’s Bay (watercolor (painting); James Crowe Richmond (New Zealand artist, 1822-1898); 1867; Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Wellington, Welling...; registration number: 1935-0005-12)
Note: Richmond's work demonstrates an attention to the picturesque, and often avoids referencing the political reason for his presence. Te Reinga, falls of the Wairoa. Hawke’s Bay is the most widely reproduced of Richmond’s watercolours. With its bold, freely applied strokes of restrained colour, it demonstrates his skilful handling of the medium. It was made during a trip to the East Coast in 1867 to deal with Maori grievances. Richmond did not consider the ‘celebrated "face to face" policy’ to have been a ‘brilliant success’, and believed that the only ‘great thing done was the confiscation and carrying off of a beautiful carved house’.(26) This was Te Hau ki Turanga, carved by Raharuhi Rukupo, and now in the care of Te Papa. While this was an ambiguously memorable moment of Richmond’s political career, it possibly ensured that Te Hau ki Turanga remained in New Zealand, for both Sir George Grey and Melbourne Museum were also keen to acquire it.
