Woodville's Kevin McIntyre on reviving interest in the works of the artist Gottfried Lindauer

Gottfried Lindauer artworks

A labour of love has turned into a European adventure. A couple devoted to celebrating the works of the former Woodville artist Gottfried Lindauer have been invited to his homeland in the Czech Republic.

Kevin McIntyre and his wife Joan set up a studio in Woodville in the Tararua District to show copies of the Bohemian portrait artist's work in 2001. Lindauer was a prolific portrait artist who specialised in portraits of Maori.
