Colin McCahon – Buttercup Fields Forever IV

Colin John McCahon (1 August 1919, Timaru, New Zealand – 27 May 1987)

Buttercup Fields Forever IV, 1967

Polyvinyl Acetate on paper

Estimated worth: $190,000-$250,000

McCahon shows religious undertones to his work by giving the landscape an essentially spiritual element. One method by which he does this is by stripping the landscape bare, showing influence of Cotton’s book Geomorphology of New Zealand.
