Nineteenth Century New Zealand Artists: A Guide & Handbook

BRIDGE, Col Cyprian c.1808–1883

BRIDGE, Col Cyprian c.1808–1883

Nephew of Admiral Cyprian Bridge with whom he is sometimes confused. Arrived in Auckland 1845 as a major in comand of the 58th Regiment, to take part in the war in the north. Sketches which he made during the campaign were reproduced in James Cowan's The New Zealand Wars 1922. He left New Zealand with the 58th in 1858. Sketch books held by Turnbull contain work by Bridge and by L/Sergeant John Williams and until lately there was a certain confusion as to the identity of the works. In Hocken, there is a drawing of Princes Street, Auckland, 1850, taken from exactly the same viewpoint as one in the Nan Kivell Collection, by Cuthbert Clarke, but with a different foreground. The Clarke is much superior. Represented in AIML, Turnbull and Hocken.
