John Moore

Aotearoa New Zealand, b.1897, d.1965

The Lion, Milford Sound

John Moore was a prolific printmaker known for his simple black and white woodcuts of Aotearoa’s native flora and fauna. He is one of the few printmakers to produce more ambitious and larger scale colour woodblocks of the New Zealand landscape, often done in the manner of ukiyo-e Japanese woodblock prints, such as The Lion, Milford Sound.
