Arthur Boyd: Agony and Ecstasy
Boyd's exhibit brings together works that emphasise Boyd’s profound and inventive engagement with realms of the human condition.
Among the many works that have not been exhibited before is The prodigal son, a large fragment of a mural that was painted by Arthur for his uncle, the well-known novelist, Martin Boyd. Undertaken in 1948 when Arthur was 28 years old, its original location was the dining room of a house known as The Grange, built by his great grandparents William Arthur Callendar and Emma (née Mills) à Beckett in 1866 at Harkaway near Berwick in Victoria.
The exhibit began on 5th September and will continue on until the 9th November, 2014.
