Ways of Seeing: Recent acquisitions from the collection

Exhibition and Shows

30 Mar 2019 to 22 Apr 2019

This display features recent acquisitions to the Art Gallery of South Australia collection, including prints, drawings, photographs, paintings, decorative arts and artist’s books.

Ways of Seeing presents for the first time Helen Frankenthaler’s Madame Butterfly, 2000, a stunning colour woodcut printed from 46 woodblocks.

Frankenthaler was inspired to work in the woodcut medium after seeing ukiyo-e prints (‘pictures of the floating world’) while travelling in Japan. Frankenthaler transformed the possibilities of the medium by creating delicate wash affects with the assistance of the American master printer, Kenneth Tyler.
