John and Hilary Mitchell on their latest book: He Ringatoi o Ngā Tupuna: Isaac Coates and his Māori Portraits

July 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Isaac Coates was an Englishman who lived in Wellington and Nelson between 1841 and 1845. During that time he painted watercolour portraits of 58 Maori from Nelson, Marlborough, Wellington, Waikanae and Kapiti.

In ‘He Ringatoi O Nga Tupuna’ eminent Te Tau Ihu historians John and Hilary Mitchell unravel the previously unknown story of Isaac Coates, as well as providing biographical details and whakapapa of his subjects, where they can be reliably identified. They discuss Coates’s work, and the many copies of his portraits held in collections in New Zealand, Australia, the US and UK.
