Hans and Nora Heysen: Two Generations of Australian Art

Exhibition and Shows

8 Mar 2019 to 28 Jul 2019

Hans and Nora Heysen: Two Generations of Australian Art is the first major exhibition to bring together the work of Hans and Nora Heysen, father and daughter artists whose work spanned more than a century during which Australia and the world underwent numerous social, political and artistic transformations. In many ways, theirs is an archetypal twentieth-century Australian story of migration, family life, wartime separation and a deep connection to place.

Hans and Nora corresponded throughout their lives and their letters offer rare insight into their working methods, inspirations, and thoughts on the key artistic debates of their time. Hans and Nora Heysen: Two Generations of Australian Art also includes a large number of sketches and preparatory studies, many of which have never been exhibited before, that demonstrate not only the intricacies of their practice but also their extraordinary productivity.
