The Art Gallery of New South Wales has launched its summer season with a large, optimistic reconsideration of one of Australian art's most favoured sons.

From 7 November 2020 to 14 February 2021 the paintings of Arthur Streeton are given pride of place.

Arthur Streeton's brilliant evocations of light, land and sea are among the most enduring and popular paintings for many Australians.

His sun-drenched impressionist landscapes from the 1880s, joyful depictions of Sydney Harbour in the 1890s, and pastoral paintings from the 1920s and 1930s continue to define an image of our unique environment.

This will be the most significant Streeton retrospective ever held and will feature more than 150 works from public and private collections including some not exhibited for over 100 years.

This exhibition will not be travelling around the country and is only on show in Sydney.

Tickets are timed and dated and it is advisable to book early as some sessions are sold out.
