Colin McCahon's House

67 Otitori Bay Rd, Titirangi
French Bay, Auckland
From 1953 to 1960 Colin McCahon, New Zealand's greatest painter lived and worked here. It was one of his most productive periods and included the painting of the Northland panels.

The house has been restored. A separate new purpose built accommodation and studio is for use by artists in residence.

The restoration architect was Pete Bossley.

Around the internal walls of the house a series of boxes can be opened to reveal in a novel way a sequence of presentations including audio, graphics and print which illuminate the artist's life at French Bay with his family, the works he produced and the people he interacted with.

To do justice to these presentations allow about three quarters of an hour. Admission is by Koha.

The McCahon House Museum is open 11am - 3pm
Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday.
