Sydney Long: Pan
6 June - 30 August 2009
Australian collection focus room, ground level
Purchased by the Art Gallery in 1898, Sydney Long’s painting, Pan, has remained as one of the most favoured treasures of the Australian art collection. Pan epitomises Long’s distinctive vision of the Australian landscape and his symbolist-inspired visual language of bush idylls, which developed from the stylistic tenets of Art Nouveau. This Focus Room exhibition provides an in-depth historical analysis of Pan as well as considering the work’s significance within the broader developments of Australian landscape painting during the build-up to Federation.
