Artists’ Faces and Places

Exhibition and Shows

30 Jun 2018 to 31 Dec 2018

Peek behind-the-scenes with this fascinating display of portraits of artists and their studios, drawn entirely from the national collection at the National Gallery of Australia.

Comprised of artists’ self-portraits, artists’ portraits of other artists, and representations of the places in which they work, the exhibition explores the way artists see themselves, the way they are viewed by their friends and contemporaries, the shared world artists inhabit, and the centrality of the studio to their creative endeavours.

In particular, Roy de Maistre’s Studio Interior 1959, painted the year before his retrospective at the Whitechapel Art Gallery in London, captures the artist’s strong connection to the location of decades of work.
