Frederick McCubbin

Whisperings in wattle boughs  

In the Gallery’s 125th anniversary year, this exhibition celebrates the first major work to enter the collection in 1900: Frederick McCubbin’s A bush burial (1890).

Made possible through public subscription, this exceptional acquisition and moment in the institution’s history is marked by bringing A bush burial into dialogue with a tightly focused selection of other iconic McCubbin works in which he elaborates and redefines the Australian bush and the human subjects within it.
