Looks at the central place of drawing in Brett Whiteley’s art

A precocious talent for drawing set Whiteley on the path of an extraordinary career as one of Australia’s best-known painters. At the heart of everything he did, drawing was fundamental to Whiteley’s imagination and creative process.

Drawn primarily from the Art Gallery of NSW and the Brett Whiteley Studio collections, the works on display range from his early drawings of Sydney and France, to the European abstract landscapes and nudes that established him as an artist of note in the 1960s, to the lyrical landscapes, interiors and nudes of later years.
