> DESCRIPTION

Renowned Australian watercolourist Robert Wade has travelled and painted across the globe, from the markets of Morocco to the canals of Venice, yet it is a dramatic outcrop of rock on the Mornington Peninsula which continues to capture his imagination.

This exhibition features fifteen watercolour studies of Pulpit Rock, Cape Schanck which Robert Wade OAM donated to the Gallery in 2007. Painted over many years, the Cape Schanck works range from 1983 to 2007; capturing many moods they are an intense study of the light and atmospheric conditions of what was to become a favourite haunt of Australian artists from the middle of the 19th century.
