I painted ‘The Feast’ in direct response to seeing an image of ‘Native Feast held at Remuera, May 11th 1844’ a watercolour by Joseph Jenner Merret and reading about the event. (“In 1844 Waikato chiefs hosted a week-long feast near Mt Hobson in Remuera. It was attended by about 4,000 Māori and many Pākehā, including an official party led by Governor Robert FitzRoy”)
