  • About

    Perth-born artist Harold 'Hal' Missingham (1906-1994) was director of the Art Gallery of New South Wales from 1945 until his retirement in 1971. In spite of clashes with a conservative board of trustees, Missingham managed to shape more progressive attitudes to contemporary art and acquire modern Australian works. He outlined his many battles with the trust and government bureaucracy in his 1973 memoir 'They kill you in the end'.
