Philip Wolfhagen is Australia’s pre-eminent contemporary landscape
painter and this exhibition is his first career survey. Featuring fifty works
from public and private collections, Wolfhagen’s ethereal and timeless
landscapes depict a specific connection to land. This specially designed
book features a 3,500 word essay by acclaimed Australian writer Tim
Winton, 2 other essays by regarded curators, and an in- depth interview
with the artist Philip Wolfhagen alongside 50 full colour plates of his
beautiful work. Wolfhagen is highly sought after by collectors and is
represented in all major public collections Australia and several overseas.
This is a Newcastle Art Gallery and Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery
travelling exhibition that explores the continuity of the landscape painting
tradition commenced in Tasmania by Eugene von Guerard and John
Glover, and its relevance in contemporary Australian art.
