Whether you’re a seasoned investor or a beginning collector, Warwick Henderson’s Behind the Canvas is a must for all New Zealand art enthusiasts. This unique book unveils the enigmatic art market, in New Zealand a market worth more than $50 million per annum, and successfully makes it accessible to all.

With over 40 years in the industry, and an award-winning Parnell art gallery, Henderson is well equipped to offer advice on the relatively young New Zealand art market. His unconstrained, natural style allows for ease of reading, and delightful personal anecdotes amuse and inspire the reader. The full colour illustrations on the glossy pages tease the senses with a taste of the vibrant and varied artwork available to New Zealand audiences.

Behind the Canvas covers all aspects of the New Zealand art market with clarity and originality. For the art buyer, dealer galleries, art fairs, and auction houses, are all discussed, as are starting a collection, investment purchases, and fakes and forgeries. Advice is offered on bargain hunting and avoiding pitfalls, and guidelines for the care and conservation of artworks are outlined. The book’s section dedicated to selling artworks offers guidance both for selling investment art as well as for artists intending to sell their work.

First published in early October of 2012, Behind the Canvas is a first of its kind, and a joy to read. While New Zealand art history books are numerous, this is the first book dedicated to revealing the hidden world of the New Zealand art market, and all of its readers will learn something from it – I certainly did. As you embark upon this intriguing world, take with you Henderson’s best piece of advice: where art is concerned, “look rather than listen” and seek out art that truly engages you.
