Art union ticket, 1910

Art union ticket, 1910

'Art unions' began as a way for art lovers to win pieces of art, usually paintings, at a fraction of the true cost. They operated like raffles, with people buying tickets to go in the draw. This ticket was purchased by Wairarapa resident John McKenzie. It is unknown whether he won any of the 18 paintings offered as prizes.
