About the Show
‘Doing this work reminds me of our early companionship & the way we had to try out things – how we were led and misled, and did the best in our innocence, and how we come back to that after all.’
– Tom Roberts to Frederick McCubbin, 1905
Australian Impressionism is underlaid by a tapestry of complex personal relationships between the artists and those close to them.
Drawing on her extensive research, Dr Anne Gray AM examines the friendships and rivalries between Impressionist artists and their long-lasting impact on the development of the movement, in conversation with NGV Curator Dr Angela Hesson.
