Gottfried Lindauer Replica Studio

Listing Details

Bohemian born portrait artist, Gottfried Lindauer, had a long association with Woodville. It was here, after living something of an itinerant life painting Maori & European portraits, that in 1890 he built a house and studio on four hectares on Pinfold Rd. Lindauer continued to work until 1918 when his failing eyesight made him something of a recluse. His last years were spent quietly in Woodville and he died on 13th June 1926 aged 87.

In the old Gorge Cemetery beneath the Ruahine Ranges, a small granite tombstone curved in the shape of an artist’s palette marks the resting place of one of New Zealand’s finest portrait painters. The simple insertion reads ‘ Gottfried Lindauer – Artist’

The Lindauer Replica Studio has been built in Vogel St alongside the Tararua i-SITE Visitor Centre. The Studio contains furniture and prints of Gottfried Lindauer’s  paintings.

Opening hours: Mon – Fri: 8am – 5pm.
Weekends and Public holidays: 9.30am – 2pm
