Australia’s Impressionists

Discover Australia’s significant and distinctive Impressionist movement in the first UK exhibition to focus on the subject. Introducing Impressionism as it manifested itself in the unique Australian context – closely related to yet entirely distinct from its French and British counterparts – 'Australia’s Impressionists' considers the role artists played in defining a new sense of national identity. Showcasing Australia’s four major exponents of Impressionism – Tom Roberts (1856–1931), Arthur Streeton, Charles Conder (1868–1909), and John Peter Russell (1858–1930) – the exhibition comprises some forty loans, many never previously shown in the UK. Lenders include some of Australia’s leading public galleries, as well as private collectors there and in the UK.
