Watercolour, New Zealand c.1864-1866
Watercolour of a Maori Pah, New Zealand, 1864-1866. This watercolour shows the carved wooden gateway to a pah (possibly the Maori fort at Maketu) and was probably painted by Lieutenant Horatio Robley, who served with the 68th Light Infantry in New Zealand during the Second Maori War. After the fighting ended and before the 68th Light Infantry sailed for home in March 1866, Horatio Robley spent as much time as he could with the Maoris living with them and sketching and studying their way of life.
