"A lively introduction to the collections of New Zealand's leading art museum, Auckland Art gallery Toi o Tāmaki... New Zealand art of all periods and media, with a particular emphasis on the last fifty years, is at the heart of the guide, which includes many works by Māori and Pacific Island artists. Brief, informative texts by the Gallery's curatorial staff accompany each image and an introductory essay recounts the development of the gallery and its collections." -- Back cover.
