Goldie Portraits such as this print were produced and distributed around Christmastime in illustrated newspapers such as The Graphic, or the Auckland Weekly News. To this day the reproduction of Goldie’s paintings in this way were problematic for the Māori subjects and descendants, yet were ‘eagerly collected by Māori, placed in meeting houses and displayed at tangi’.
