With new legislation on the books to tether back drinking in NZ how about this piece of serious spending to stock up a studio? The American abstract artist Franz Kline goes shopping in 1960 and puts $NZ390 over the counter, a sum that would be worth around $2800 today. The order includes Cutty Sark at around $50 a bottle and as you can see Kline stumped up for half a dozen.
The original documentation is held in the Smithsonian Museum
