War Art Online at Matapihi

News from the Mataphi , the metadata harvest portal to some key New Zealand heritage, art, library, and archive resources, both local and national.

They have announced that more than 600 artworks, including paintings and drawings, from War Art Online, a new digital collection from Archives New Zealand Te Rua Mahara o te Kāwanatanga, have been added to the Matapihi website at http://www.matapihi.org.nz/.

War Art Online draws together artworks from New Zealand’s National Collection of War Art, covering major conflicts involving New Zealanders from World War One onwards.

The collection includes portraits, battle scenes, landscapes and abstract works, giving a picture of the men and women who served New Zealand in times of war, and the arenas in which they served.

They suggest, as an example, look for images from War Art Online on Matapihi, together with resources from other leading New Zealand heritage collections, by searching for battle areas such as “Monte Cassino” or “Tobruk”, or for war artists such as “Russell Clark”.

You can also view highlights from War Art Online and other multimedia content relating to New Zealand war histories and major events in the updated New Zealanders at War showcase here

Cheap “fashion” watches buoyed the prestige brands, Replica Rolex watches allowing all the marketing money to flow upward. While Swatch didn’t have to advertise (try to remember the last ad for a watch you saw), Replica Rolex Watches the more expensive brands did. Each brand – most now owned by either Swatch Group or Richemont – Watches Replica positioned itself in a different niche. Breitling aimed for the clouds with photos of UK Replica watches of Designer handbags.
