Self-Taught & Visionary Art in New Zealand

Typical subject matter in this category includes: nudes, adventure, famous people, wild animals, historic (New Zealand settler) scenes and hunting scenes.

Men tend to like to portray ‘American Indians’. Both men and women like to portray horses (domestic, sporting and wild) and female nudes.

Technical accuracy of rendering, attaining a likeness, is a prime criterion for the success of such work.
