Title

Study for 'The coast near Coolum augmented by a recollection of Mazeppa'

1985


Artist

James Gleeson

Australia

21 Nov 1915 - 20 Oct 2008


About

It is these drawings over which Gleeson places a gridded sheet of Perspex in order to transfer the image onto canvas. Therefore they are more than merely preliminary studies, but are the basis for, or final design for each painting.
