This year marks the birth anniversaries of two great Australian artists, Sir Arthur Streeton (1867-1943) and Sir Sidney Nolan (1917-1992). Alongside fellow Australian Impressionist artists Frederick McCubbin, Tom Roberts and Charles Conder, Streeton endeavoured to depict the unique qualities and intense light of the Australian landscape..
A leading figure of Melbourne's Heide circle of modernist artists, Nolan created colourful, expressionist works, which included interpretations of the Australian landscape and iconic figures such as Ned Kelly and explorers Burke and Wills.
Our first internationally recognised artist, Nolan spent much of his career in the United Kingdom and Europe.
