Major Waata Kukutai by Gottfried Lindauer (late 1800s) Auckland Art Gallery. Besides his portraits of eminent Māori, he produced many of ordinary Māori people, most of whom wear European dress. Most of these were probably commissioned by the sitters or their families. In contrast, in Lindauer’s Māori portraits for European patrons, most of the subjects are shown in traditional & ceremonial Māori costume; markers of exotic difference to European viewers.
