National Centennial Exhibition of New Zealand Art Catalogue
Leonard H. Booth
Leonard H. Booth was born in Christchurch in the early eighties and studied art at the Canterbury College School of Art under a scholarship. Although he intended at one stage to become an engineer and studied to that end, he was almost continuously associated with the School of Art, finally becoming life master there. He has executed many pen and ink drawings for publication in various New Zealand and Australian journals, and has exhibited works in oils, including portraits of notable New Zealand figures.
