The influences on Brett Whiteley’s art and life were many and varied, from writers, poets and musicians to photographers and painters.

In mono-prints, drawings and paintings, Whiteley paid tribute to Francis Bacon, Henri Matisse, Vincent van Gogh, Bob Dylan and Arthur Rimbaud as subject and inspiration.

This exhibition celebrates the art of Whiteley through three key themes: visual art, literature and music.

Note: The opening date for this exhibition has changed from 26 March to 13 May 2016, and the closing date has been extended until 13 November 2016.
