BARRAUD, Charles Decimus. [An early colour-printed view of Pukawa Bay]
Pukawa Lake. London: Sampson Low Marston et al, 1877. Chromolithograph, image 255 x 355, laid on thick paper printed with title and inscriptions as issued, sheet 435 x 565mm. Slight cockling on image.
A view of Pūkawa Bay, on the western shores of Lake Taupo, North Island. Drawn by Barraud, the plate was lithographed by W.D. Blatchley and printed by C.F. Kell. Barraud (1822-97) arrived in New Zealand in 1849 and started work as a pharmacist in Lambton Quay. He also started painting his surroundings, chiefly in watercolour, and travelled widely around both North and South Islands. Eventually a collection of his watercolours were sent to London and published as 'New Zealand: Graphic and Descriptive', with a text written by William T.L. Travers (1819-1903), a naturalist and politician who founded the New Zealand Institute and was one of the earliest explorers of Nelson province. The work contained 24 brightly-coloured chromolithographic plates, 6 tinted lithographs (printed in black and sepia) and 31 wood-engravings. Barraud was a founder member of the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts in 1882.
