To celebrate the exhibition "Grand Country": Fred Williams in Gippsland, Art Writer Rodney James will present an illustrated talk exploring the coastal landscapes of Fred Williams.
As one of the twentieth century’s most revered and innovative artists, Fred Williams (1927-82) was an icon of Australian art. Williams revolutionised the way we see the natural environment through a distinctive approach to landscape. He painted all corners of Australia, from Tasmania to Far North Queensland to remote districts of Western Australia, but what is less well known is that Williams was also a regular visitor to Gippsland, especially in the years between 1968 and 1979.
