Stanley Graham Series I – Trevor Moffitt

$900.00

 

Trevor Moffitt (1936–2006)

Moffitt graduated from the University of Canterbury School of Fine Arts in 1959. Moffitt was New Zealand’s leading narrative painters. Moffitt’s expressionist paintings reveal the lives and stories of ordinary working people and strike a familiar note with every New Zealander.

This drawing is from a series based on the story of Stanley Graham, the perpetrator of NZ’s first mass murder. On 8 October 1941, Eric Stanley Graham killed three police officers and fatally wounded a fourth at his farm near Hokitika. He later killed an agricultural instructor and two Home Guardsmen. A massive manhunt ended on 20 October when Graham was shot on sight by Constable James Quirke.

Whilst on the run Graham broke into neighbouring farmhouses to steal food, like eggs, as depicted in this sketch.
