Splendours of Civilisation - $40
The John Money Collection at the Eastern Southland Gallery with text by Michael King.
Splendours of Civilisation not only tells the heroic story of how the John Money Collection came to be housed at the Eastern Southland Gallery in Gore, it also shows the collection in all its magnificence.
The late Michael King re-acquainted himself with John Money while carrying out research for
his biography of Janet Frame. This in turn led him to explore the patronage of this extraordinary
New Zealander. In this, his last published work, Michael King documents Money’s life and places
him within the generation of twentieth-century artists, writers, composers and academics who
helped weave the cultural fabric of New Zealand.
Beautifully illustrated throughout, Splendours of Civilisation is a dazzling portal into Money’s, and Eastern Southland’s extraordinary national treasure.
