The Group 1927-1977: an annotated bibliography

Cover of The Group 1927-1977: an annotated bibliography by Elizabeth Louise C’Ailceta Cooke.

The aim of this bibliography

This bibliography is designed for researchers interested in 20th century New Zealand, and specifically Canterbury, art history. Like many other aspects of our social and cultural past, New Zealand art history is an increasingly popular area of study as we seek to develop a sense of our unique national identity and history. The newness of this interest, however, often means that these topics lack the research and bibliographical tools available in other, more established areas.

Although some specific artists associated with the Group are now the subject of such research little has been undertaken on the Group itself. The Group is a unique and important part of New Zealand art history and this bibliography is intended to begin filling this gap, and by raising awareness of the resources available encourage further research into New Zealand art and local history-related topics.
