Toss Woollaston was a major figure in New Zealand art during the twentieth century. Both The Pond and Westland Landscape were originally completed in Woollaston’s sketchbooks, the pages having since been removed and framed for display. Woollaston’s direct approach to sketching and painting outdoors is clearly evident in these works where he has employed very wet, fluid washes of colour directly with little sign of hesitation.
