The Art Gallery of NSW presents Streeton, a landmark exhibition of Australia’s iconic impressionist, Arthur Streeton, whose brilliant evocations of light, land and sea captured the spirit and optimism of our country.

Arthur Streeton is undeniably our greatest impressionist landscape painter and this exhibition reveals the seminal role he played in defining a unique vision of Australia, while exploring the evolution of his art over six decades.

Featuring more than 150 paintings, drawings and watercolours from 42 public and private collections, some not exhibited publicly for more than 100 years, Streeton is an in-depth survey of the artist’s unique contribution to Australian art from the 1880s to the 1940s.

Two years in preparation, Streeton brings together sun-drenched impressionist landscapes from the 1880s, joyful depictions of Sydney Harbour in the 1890s, pastoral paintings from the 1920s and 30s, and a selection of artworks from the artist’s international career painting in Egypt, England, Italy and WWI France.

The first Streeton exhibition in quarter of a century and the most comprehensive since his 1931 lifetime retrospective at the Art Gallery of NSW, Streeton presents works from museums and galleries around Australia alongside paintings from the Gallery’s extensive collection and rarely seen works from private collections.

For families, there are also children’s labels, a children’s trail and an activity sheet with ideas for creating art at home.

Streeton is supported by the NSW Government through its tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.
