2016 Art From Australia Wall Calendar


In the late 1800s Arthur Streeton portrayed exploration and Australia’s physical landscape, capturing its essence in space and light. Come the 1930s, Clarice Beckett soft-focused on suburban reality and somehow transcended the everyday. By the late 1960s, Arthur Boyd related an Old Testament tale of insanity to self-immolation protests against the Vietnam War. Through these images we glimpse the history of art in Australia as it shines a light on the country’s evolving social, cultural, and political values, taking on the intricacies of daily life and leaving its comment for world.
