Australia's Impressionists in London & Europe
Fri 2 December 2016, 18:30 – 21:30 GMT
The Menzies Centre for Australian Studies is proud to partner with the National Gallery of London to host Australia's Impressionists in London & Europe in celebration of the 'Australia's Impressionists' exhibition.
Australia’s Impressionist in London & Europe will take place on Friday 2 December 2016 at King’s College London and feature a plenary lecture from Dr Anna Gray, former Emeritus Curator at the National Gallery of Australia. Following the lecture, Dr Gray will be joined in conversation with independent art historian Lucrezia Walker and Wayne Tunnicliffe, Head Curator of Australian Art at the Art Gallery of NSW.
'Australia’s Impressionists' (Sunley Room, 7 December 2016 – 26 March 2017) is the first exhibition in the UK to focus solely on Australian Impressionist artists. Showcasing four of Australia’s major exponents of Impressionism – Tom Roberts (1856–1931), Arthur Streeton, Charles Conder (1868–1909), and John Russell (1858–1930) – the exhibition features over forty works from some of Australia’s leading public galleries as well as private collections from Australia and the UK. Many works will be on view in the UK for the first time.
