In the decades between the two world wars, progressive artists explored and promoted modernity through revolutions in colour and light. Their exuberant, cosmopolitan paintings, prints, sculptures and designs represent one of the most distinctive and innovative periods in the history of Australian art.
Focusing on works created between 1915 and 1942 by artists largely based in Sydney, this exhibition explores early Australian modernism and its drives to abstraction. Artists include Roy de Maistre, Roland Wakelin, Grace Cossington Smith, Margaret Preston, Thea Proctor, Grace Crowley, Harold Cazneaux, Olive Cotton and Max Dupain.

Over 120 exceptional prints and drawings from the British Museum, which holds one of the finest collections of Spanish drawings in the world.

The exhibition brings together for the first time prints and drawings by Spanish and other European artists working in Spain from the mid 16th to the early 19th century. It provides a compelling overview of more than 200 years of artistic production, including many works which have never before been on display. Presented by the British Museum in collaboration with the Art Gallery of NSW.
