Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki unveiled a remarkable collection of 15 original masterpieces from 11 of Europe’s most influential modern artists, including Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, and Henri Matisse. This significant exhibition, entitled ‘Paths through Modernity’, became a reality thanks to a generous donation from the late American collectors Julian and Josie Robertson, who have had ties with New Zealand since the late 1970s. The artworks, which include Picasso’s ‘Femme à la résille’ (1938) and Matisse’s ‘Espagnole (buste)’ (1922), were collectively valued at $178 million, marking one of the most substantial philanthropic contributions to New Zealand’s cultural scene.
