Book of the Week: Colin McCahon: Is This the Promised Land? (Volume 2: 1960—1987) by Peter Simpson. Remarkable both for its breadth and its depth of insight, Peter Simpson's magisterial work on New Zealand's most important artist is completed in this second volume. Through landscapes, biblical paintings and abstraction, the introduction of words and Maori motifs, McCahon's work came to define a distinctly New Zealand Modernist idiom.
