The New Zealander in London
"The New Zealander" in London : a pilgrimage
Grant & Co.: London
In the 1870s the artist Gustave Doré depicted Macaulay's New Zealander visiting future London. In the accompanying text Jerrold wrote, ‘Macaulay's dream of the far future, with the tourist New Zealander ... contemplating "The glory that was Greece - The grandeur that was Rome".' This solitary philosopher-artist appears more akin to romanticised images of young English travelers, discovering and sketching the ruins of Palmyra a century earlier, than to New Zealanders who had recently been at war with Colonial and Imperial troops.
