2000-2010
Charles Conder
Sat 14 June - Sun 17 August 2003
Upper Level

This exhibition of the Australian painter Charles Conder (1868-1909) covers both his Australian period, when he was a vital contributor to the great Heidelberg school of impressionist painting, and his career in Europe, where he became a legendary figure of the fin de siècle. A total of 112 works have been borrowed from public and private collections throughout Australia and Great Britain - paintings, watercolours, lithographs, book illustrations, painted silk fans and a superb decorated dress from the Victoria & Albert Museum.

Sharing 'golden summers' with Roberts and Streeton, sketched by Toulouse-Lautrec in the Moulin Rouge, befriended by Oscar Wilde and Charles Sickert in London, Conder's brief but extraordinary life and career can be rediscovered in this, the first major retrospective of his work ever to be organised in Australia.
