Photo by NZPA A rare "masterpiece" of New Zealand art to be sold by auction next month has attracted huge interest from art investors, even in a depressed economy, says the auction house. Renowned artist Evelyn Page was 74 when she painted the oil on canvas, entitled Nude in a Doorway.

Exhibited: Paintings since and a few others, Cat no. This proved to be prophetic as Evelyn Page, who was 71 at the time, continued to experiment and extend the boundaries of her painting practice for another 17 years. This enabled the form of the main subject, particularly in the case of a figure, to be presented without distraction as the primary subject of the work. Like the modern French master who inspired her, Page created this exotic fantasy by assembling favourite pieces of fabric, foliage and familiar objects. These objects are assembled into an intoxicating blend of pattern and colour that would both compliment and intensify the luscious flesh tones of a favourite model.
