Australian Impressionism at the National Gallery London
A real eye opener. Australian Impressionism at the National Gallery London reveals an unsung, virtually unheard of movement that encapsulated the founding of the Nation of Australia.
Tom Roberts, Arthur Streeton:
Charles Condor and John Russell:
were remarkable artists working in Australia.
Their movement was adopted by the new nation of Australia when it became its own Federation in 1901: defining what it meant to be Australian.
A zeitgeist reflecting the period eye of the times.
Plein-aire paintings, engaging with the Australian landscape and cityscapes.
The 1889 Melbourne Exhibition in Australia – true impressionism far away from the French and British scene.
