Maori Girl - Gottfried Lindauer Greeting Card

Story

Commissioned portraits gave Māori control over how they were represented. This portrait was probably painted for this unidentified girl or her whānau [family]. Gottfried Lindauer’s portraits of Māori painted for Pākehā usually feature customary adornment and clothing. But this elegant young woman wears beautifully tailored European clothing – her own choice of personal expression. <br/> <br> Lindauer painted many portraits for Māori clients from the mid 1870s. For his sitters, portraiture was another way of representing themselves, in addition to whakairo [carving] and other art forms.
