Brett Whiteley: drawing is everything
This summer the Art Gallery of New South Wales is delighted to present Brett Whiteley: drawing is everything, the first major museum exhibition to focus on the central place of drawing in Whiteley’s work.
The drawings in this exhibition have rarely been seen. They range from Whiteley’s early images of Sydney and Europe and his great abstracts that brought him international fame in the 1960s, to the lyrical landscapes, portraits, interiors and nudes that established him as one of the most prominent and well-loved Australian artists of the 20th century. Key paintings and sculptures are also showcased, underpinning the importance of drawing to Whiteley’s broader artistic practice
