Object Detail

James McLauchlan Nairn arrived in New Zealand in 1890 from Scotland and became this country's most renowned impressionist painter. He was appointed an art instructor at the Wellington School of Design in 1891. He and a group of enthusiasts founded the Wellington Art Club in 1892. Nairn rented Pumpkin Cottage in Silverstream about 1894 and this became the base for the “Nairn School” and the group that became known as the Pumpkin Cottage artists. It was again used by the Wellington Sketch and Studio Club in the 1940’s.
