In 1901, visitors to the newly opened Lindauer Art Gallery on Queen Street in Auckland were able to sign a Visitors' Book and leave a comment about their experience. In the same spirit, we invite you to sign your name and share your reflections in the Whakamīharo Lindauer Online Guestbook.

Anonymous Bathurst really cool!!!
Anonymous Auckland I really enjoy comparing the different painting techniques between Goldie and Lindeur as their work is so different yet both are so entrancing. It is hard for me to undrestand how they can include so much Maori culture on one small canvas
D.Connelly Ngati Whatua, Te Arawa, Ngati Porou Auckland Wonderful Website great for young up and coming maori artists like myself.
Jamie Nepia Te Iwi Morehu/Tuwharetoa/Te Whakatohea Whanganui kia ora rawa atu rawe nga pikitia e kite nei au nga rangatira o te motu tena koutou
Donna Te Tai Taranaki/Ngati-Ruanui/Te Atiawa/Ngati-Kahungungu ki Wairarapa/Ngapuhi Tamaki Makaurau Kia ora. I am privileged to see my tupuna,who was painted by Gottfried Lindauer. Hoani Te Rangitakaiwaho. My father looks like him.
Rex Le Grice pakeha Auckland I have marveled at Lindauer and Goldie's work for sixty years. A superb site which show the dignity of all the Maori rangatira and others during the late 1800s. As a photographer I was interested to know that Lindauer appreciated and used some photos as reference. Partridge deserves praise also for supporting Lindauer for so many years
Robert Brewster New Zealander Athens A superb and inspiring collection
Helen Binder Stuttgart Too bad the other Gallerz is under construction, but we liked it anyway!!!
