Installation Images of Exiles – Rudolf Boelee

Rotorua Museum of Art and History

Starts: Saturday, June 06, 2009
Finishes: Sunday, August 02, 2009

Portrait paintings by Christchurch artist Rudolf Boelee depict identities of the Depression era who travelled abroad: artists, pathfinders and cultural identities who ‘went where few Kiwis had been before’.

The chiaroscuro head and shoulders portraits are of Charles Brasch, Robin Hyde, Rewi Alley, James Bertram, Geoffrey Cox and John Mulgan.
