David John Payne
(Birmingham 1880 -1959 Auckland New-Zealand)
British born and trained New-Zealand painter etcher, lithographer and woodcut printmaker by occasion.
I had seen once one of these two very nice (1922) woodcut prints. Paying a virtual visit to the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki, and doing some investigating I found another one in their collections. A great and to me still incredible way of travelling these days.
When I was there and looking around I found also this great (1919) lithograph: St. Matthews by Night (Auckland): a very serene picture and what great blues.
