The AGNSW presents
MARGARET PRESTON: ART AND LIFE
OPENS FRIDAY 29 JULY
This is the first major retrospective exhibition of one of Australia's
most celebrated artists Margaret Preston (1875-1963). Bold,
cosmopolitan and intensely coloured, Preston's woodblock prints and
paintings of still life subjects and the Sydney metropolis epitomise a
unique era in the history of Australian art.
This extensive exhibition comprises over 180 works including paintings,
prints, pottery, textiles and previously unseen archival material
relating to Preston's colourful life.
