Step out of the heat this Summer and be dazzled by an exhibition of masterpieces from the Mildura Arts Centre Collection.
Works by Degas, Brangwyn and Orpen are accompanied by that of Australian artists such as Frederick McCubbin and Mary Cecil Allen. This curated selection spans genres from landscapes to portraits, demonstrating the diverse and rich array of techniques and styles explored by well-renowned artists.
The French Impressionism of Edgar Degas’s beautiful Femme à la baignoire se coiffant, c.1894, evidences his refined and exquisite handling of pastel.
Society portraitist, war artist and socialite Sir William Orpen’s particular Anglo-Irish persona is captured in two self-portraits painted 13 years apart, Self-portrait with Glasses, 1907, and Self-Portrait, 1920, while his fascination with women of strong character is explored in the stunning paintings Portrait of Grace, 1907, Madame Errázuriz, 1915 and Portrait of Anna Pavlova, 1920.
