National Centennial Exhibition of New Zealand Art Catalogue
John Cam Duncan
Dr John Cam Duncan was born at Christchurch in 1881 and had no technical art training. During the latter part of the Great War, however, he had access to the studios of John, Orpen, Stuart-Hill, Dobson, and Schwabe, and absorbed much valuable information. A close association with Grüner in 1931 influenced his work deeply. In 1934 he won the Bledisloe Medal for the best landscape of the year, and has also exhibited extensively at the various Art Societies' exhibitions in New Zealand. He is represented in the Wanganui Art Gallery.
