documentary heritage
  • Other Name

    Mitchell and Mitchell (Alternate title)

  • Description

    Leonard Cornwall Mitchell (1901-71) has been called the father of New Zealand graphic design ... For Mitchell's first son, Leonard Victor Mitchell (1925-80), art was a natural family fix. At age 31, he won the first Kelliher Art Award and painted one of New Zealand's most ambitious murals (Human Endeavour, installed in Lower Hutt's War Memorial Library) ... Only now, through privileged access to his own repatriated collection, can Mitchell's art be fully understood.
