Thanks for this, EP; this is my first time, I think, seeing any Australian paintings!

More AGNSW pictures, this one focusing on the museum’s works by Australian artists. (I’m using a loose definition: artists who were either born or died or spent a substantial part of their lives in Australia.) I was especially taken by the nightmarish Surrealist paintings of Herbert McClintock and James Gleeson, enough that I’ll be investigating their work a lot further. Talk about out-Dalí-ing Dalí. I’m also a fan of Weaver Hawkins’ strikingly modernist jockeys, and Arthur Collingridge’s oddly sweet A Token of Friendship.
