Arthur Dagley

This board is dedicated to my Grandfather, Arthur Dagley (1919-1998), who has more than once been described as "the most underrated painter in New Zealand". I love his art, and loved watching him at work in his studio at home in Tauranga. Arthur loved the Port of Tauranga and had a lifetime fascination with shipping, which you'll see in a lot of his pieces. He also loved painting landscapes and human figures, often with a humourous narrative. He remains a huge influence on me in so many ways.
