Awapuni Lagoon as painted by Christopher Aubrey. Not much is known about Christopher Aubrey, the Evening Standard (12/12/1979), writes of him as possibly a remittance man earning extra money from his paintings.

The house in the painting was called 'Awa-Puni" and was built by A Southley Baker in 1887. It was bought by Alan Strang in 1902. The Strang family lived there until 1926 when it was sold to William Lovelock, a friesian breeder, who renamed it Friesland Park. After being sold to Albert Candy in 1930, it burned down, c.1931.
