Olsen, Nolan, Williams & Drysdale


16 Feb 2006 - 09 Apr 2006

This exhibition brings together the works of some the most inventive and influential Australian artists of the 20th Century – John Olsen, Sidney Nolan, Fred Williams and Russell Drysdale. Each of the artists has sought to redefine the Australian landscape through the language of painting. Profound visions of desert and mountain ranges, vast drought stricken landscapes and powerful narratives of inland Australia have burned themselves into the Australian psyche. The images created by Olsen, Nolan, Williams & Drysdale continue to inspire and captivate viewers, who now have an opportunity to experience the comprehensive selection of paintings and works on paper presented at the Holmes à Court Gallery. The exhibition features over 25 works from The Holmes à Court Collection, many of which have not been seen in Western Australia.
