Architecture, Art & Design

Feilding-born Cranleigh Barton travelledextensively most of his life, and his journalsand paintings capture a world that has vanished.

He began his diary in 1908 when he was 17; tenyears later he took up the challenge of becoming awatercolour artist.

When he wasn’t abroad, Cranleigh lived a comfortable bachelor existence, creating a home and much-admired garden on a Christchurch hillside overlooking the Pacific.

Cranleigh compiled over 80 journals, and his watercolours number in the thousands.

Abroad brings selected entries and paintings together for the first time. They shine a light on the richness of an artist’s life in the first half of the 20th century in New Zealand, Australia, the UK, Europe and the East.
