About

Hans Heysen captured aspects of the Australian landscape like few of his generation, with an assuredness underscored by his facility as a draughtsman and acute observer of nature. The Gallery has nineteen of Heysen's drawings of the landscape around his South Australian home at Hahndorf and in the Flinders Ranges.
