Russell Drysdale: Bouddi exhibition

Proudly developed by Gosford Regional Gallery, Russell Drysdale: Bouddi brings together significant paintings and drawings produced by Drysdale in his studio at Bouddi Farm on the Central Coast and explores his influence on other Australian creatives at the culmination of his distinguished career.

The exclusive exhibition includes loans from the National Gallery of Australia, the National Library of Australia, the National Portrait Gallery, Rockhampton Art Gallery, the Murray Art Museum Albury and many private collections.

Drysdale’s vision of the outback revolutionised Australian art in the 1940s and paved the way for the success of modern painting in Australia. His subjects were ordinary country people living a harsh existence in vast drought-stricken lands. Together with his modern stylistic distortions of the figure and dusty skies, these subjects represented a significant break with the pastoral landscapes of the previous generation. His work resonated with post-war society and came to be considered quintessentially Australian.
