"Lloyd Rees Sketchbooks"
2002-02-08 until 2002-04-28
Art Gallery of New South Wales
Sydney, , AU Australia

The great Australian artist Lloyd Rees (1895-1988) made four extended visits to Europe between 1953 and 1973. He recorded his passion for Europe in a variety of sketchbooks, which are now amongst the most prized works in the collection of the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

This is the first exhibition to be devoted to Rees' sketchbooks and his love of Europe.

This exhibition, like the previously popular centenary retrospective of his drawings in 1995, offers further evidence of his acute powers of observation, draughtsmanship and sensitivity to place. Rees ... rarely started a work without his subject matter before him -- he was a passionate advocate of remaining true to first visual impressions. - Hendrik Kolenberg, Curator
