Newly-discovered Goldie fetches $384,000 at auction

From Morning Report, 8:55 am on 15 August 2018

A newly discovered painting by the renowned New Zealand artist Charles F Goldie has sold for almost four hundred thousand dollars. The portrait of Kapi Kapi, an Arawa Chieftainess, was painted in 1918 and, last night, a private collector put it on the market for the first time. Kapi Kapi was a member of the Tuhourangi tribe and survived the 1886 eruption of Mt Tarawera. Our reporter Anneke Smith went along to the auction.
