Hans HEYSEN 'Aroona' 1939 watercolour on paper, 42.2 x 62.0 cm Private collection
20 November 2010 - 30 January 2011

An Art Gallery of South Australia travelling exhibition

One of Australia’s greatest artists, Hans Heysen (1877-1968), will be celebrated with this major retrospective of his work. This exhibition features 67 works of art created over the artist's seventy year career.

In addition to his iconic ‘gum tree’ paintings, the exhibition will take a fresh look at Heysen’s lesser-known themes. It will trace his development from early student days painting in Europe from 1899-1903, including images of Paris and Venice, to the revelation of barren landscapes and ancient mountain forms in the Flinders Ranges from 1926 onwards. The exhibition will also feature works of art from the Newcastle Region Art Gallery collection.

An admission fee applies. General public $8.
Art Gallery Society members/conc. $5.
Booked school groups and children under 12 free.
