Famous nineteenth century travel artists

Nicholas Chevalier (1828-1902) and Samuel Butler (1853 – 1902).

Those men are just two examples of travel artists in search of a picturesque landscape to paint.

They both fell in love with Canterbury. Their art shows the beauty of the wide plains and the snow-capped mountains of the Mackenzie Country.

While Samuel Butler’s work is primarily of Mount Cook, Nicholas Chevalier traveled not only to America but also to New Zealand and thus is known for his painting of both the places.
