AbstractGottfried Lindauer was a Bohemian painter residing and working in Aotearoa New Zealand. His paintings capturing the native people and their life earned him praise and respect from the Māori and Pākehā alike, as well as international recognition within and outside the artistic community. The Náprstek Museum in Prague owns two of his paintings, a small collection of Maori objects, photographs and letters to Ms Josefa Náprstková. This set of resources offers a comprehensive view on the artist’s collection practices, his creative process, and last but not least his relation to the Náprstek family.
