About This Item

London: C. F. Kells, 1877. unbound. Color Lithograph. Image measures 10" x 14 1/4" Repairs to presentation sheet, otherwise in good condition.<br/><br/> This remarkable scenic view depicts Mount Alford in the Ashburton District, Canterbury, New Zealand. Barraud's use of color and shadows emphasizes the majesty of New Zealand landscapes. In this print, it seems to be nearing sunset, with the mountains bathed in purple light. <br><br> Charles D. Barraud (1822-1897) was a chemist, pharmacist, and artist. After establishing his pharmaceutical business and gaining some success, he continued to pursue his interest in painting, traveling widely throughout the islands, documenting remote natural landscapes. He gained early recognition for his art, eventually became the founder and president of the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts.<br/><br/>
