John Olsen: Goya’s Dog spans eight decades of the artist’s practice, from the 1950s, when he first visited Spain, to the present.
This exhibition tracks the influences of these Spanish encounters on the artist’s sensibility, his palette, and how he views the landscape and the human condition. It delves into the introspection and darker elements that pervade his work, and contrasts these with the sunny, more exuberant aspects of his practice.
Goya’s Dog features over 50 major works, sketchbooks and drawings, many not seen in public for generations.
Curated by Steven Alderton based on a concept by William Wright AM.
Please join us on Thursday 10 June for the opening night of ‘John Olsen: Goya’s Dog’. The exhibition will run Friday 11 June – Saturday 7 August 2021
