> DESCRIPTION

'A distinguished artist who comes closest perhaps, in Australian terms, to being an old master’

- Michael Brand, Art Gallery of NSW director

One of Australia’s most admired artists, Lloyd Rees (1895-1988) was also one of the pre-eminent landscape artists of his age. His life and work spanned most of the 20th century.

Following initial training as an artist in Brisbane, Rees arrived in Sydney in 1917 and made it his home for almost 70 years. The works in this exhibition celebrate his environment in Sydney, especially the harbour and its environs, as well as landscape further afield, such as the South Coast, Tasmania and Europe.

It is accompanied by a new book Lloyd Rees: paintings, drawings and prints, highlighting the remarkable quality and abundance of works by Rees at the Gallery, which has the most comprehensive collection of his works of any institution.
