Robert MacDonald, The Early Years

Works reflecting the adventurous early life of New Zealand artist, Robert Macdonald, now living in Wales. Leaving school in the Waikato in 1952, Macdonald trained as a journalist, but in 1958 he left New Zealand as crew member of a sailing ship. Studying art in London, he again took up journalism as a means of support as he pursued his dream of becoming a full- time artist. The Early Years includes never shown before paintings and original prints from 1951– early 1970’s, looking back nostalgically on Macdonald’s life in New Zealand, his sailing adventures and his journalist experiences in the courts and diplomatic arena.
