These works by modern masters are from the collection of Euan and Ann Sinclair, who have generously gifted seven works on paper to the Te Papa Foundation.

Trips to the Dunedin Public Art Gallery as a boy sparked Euan’s interest in modern art. Euan now lives in Chicago, where his love of art continues to grow. Through their gifts to Te Papa, Euan and Ann hope to help inspire a new generation of New Zealand art lovers.

On display are works by Salvador Dalí, André Lhote, Roy Lichtenstein, René Magritte, André Masson, Joan Miró, Jackson Pollock, Gino Severini, Nicolas Tarkhoff, and Andy Warhol.
