Australia’s Impressionists

National Gallery, London

NOW CLOSED

Showcasing four innovative Australian Impressionist artists, Tom Roberts, Arthur Streeton, Charles Conder, and John Russell, this exhibition explores Impressionism in an Australian context – closely related to yet entirely distinct from its European counterparts. From ‘snapshots’ of life in the rapidly teeming cities of Melbourne and Sydney to dazzling landscapes of coast and bushland, the paintings of Roberts, Streeton, and Conder came to epitomise a growing sense of national identity as Australia approached Federation in 1901.
