Olsen: the you beaut country

Retrospective of the distinguished Australian artist

Olsen: the you beaut country surveys the remarkable, seven-decade career of one of Australia’s most distinguished artists, John Olsen.

Born in Newcastle in 1928, John Olsen became widely known for his energetic and distinctive painting style and his lyrical depictions of the landscape and its life-forms.

Olsen: the you beaut country encompasses the artist’s formative years in Sydney and Europe, and his return to Australia and development of a spectacular and idiosyncratic vision of the landscape.

The exhibition is a National Gallery of Victoria exhibition in association with the Art Gallery of NSW and is the most comprehensive display ever mounted on Olsen’s work. Featuring paintings, ceramics, tapestries and works on paper from collections across Australia.
