Mitchell & Mitchell: A Father & Son Arts Legacy

By Peter Alsop, Anna Reed & Richard Wolfe
Published in October 2018 by Potton & Burton

“Leonard C. Mitchell and Leonard V. Mitchell – father and son – are two forgotten artistic heroes. Now, critically studied for the first time, their highlight reel runs long. No other family can likely claim such a diverse contribution to New Zealand art.”

Published in 2018, Mitchell & Mitchell celebrates the work of artist Leonard Victor Mitchell and his father, Leonard Cornwall Mitchell, a world-class illustrator, artist and stamp designer. Co-designed by Mitchell Studios’ Director Anna Reed and focusing on the lives and art of her Grandfather and Uncle, Mitchell & Mitchell will always be available to purchase from our gallery and online store.
