Iconic Whiteley is the latest exhibition from the Brett Whiteley Studio Museum, and is the exhibition of work from Whiteley’s entire career.
Iconic Whiteley is, in essence, an exploration of Brett Whiteley (1939 – 1992), one of Australia’s most well known artists, and includes his Self Portrait in the Studio, for which he won the Archibald Prize in 1976, plus several other well-known works from his early success in Europe and Australia, including the Abstraction, Christie and Zoo series, through to his popular Lavender Bay, Paris and Bird series.
Iconic Whiteley provides a unique opportunity to display such rare masterpieces across the artist’s entire career.
The Brett Whiteley Studio Museum is set in Whiteley’s actual studio prior to his death and is a tribute to his life, featuring exhibits of many finished and unfinished paintings, photos, sketchbooks, memorabilia, sculptures with the walls covered in graffiti, quotes and images. After his death, the Australian Government purchased his studio and it is currently managed by the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
From now until April, 2010, you can see ‘Iconic Whiteley’, exhibiting works from across his entire career, including his Self Portrait in the Studio, which won him the Archibald Prize in 1976.
