Mediterranean Summers: Australian Artists along the French and Italian Coast
16 March—26 May 2013
This exhibition examines the works of Rupert Bunny, E Phillips Fox, Sir Will Ashton, Ambrose Patterson and many more, to show the inspiration and influence that light and colour had on these painters.
It also looks at the work of tonalists Justus Jorgensen, Colin Colahan and Harley Griffiths to ‘debunk’ art historians criticisms of their work and reasserts their progressive conceptual thought with a stronger use of colour not normally associated with this group of painters.
