Join us as we examine Australian impressionism and one of its most significant contributors, Arthur Streeton, within the context of an international impressionist movement.
On the occasion of the Art Gallery of NSW’s major exhibition 'Streeton', this series begins with Streeton’s story and the rise of Australian impressionism before moving abroad and observing the origins of impressionism and its migration to places such as Russia and Scandinavia.
We examine the presence and absence of Indigenous cultures in Streeton’s art as well as conserving impressionist paintings and the recent discoveries hidden beneath some of Streeton’s paintings in the Gallery’s collection.
Over four weeks, hear from AGNSW Head Curator of Australian Art Wayne Tunnicliffe, leading art historian Molly Duggins, AGNSW Assistant Curator of International Art Anne Gerard-Austin and AGNSW Head of Painting Conservation, Paula Dredge.
