Australian Impressionism

Heralding the return of Arthur Streeton’s Golden summer, Eaglemont from the National Gallery, London, all of the NGA’s major Australian Impressionist works will be hung together, offering an unprecedented opportunity to experience the depth and richness of the national collection.

In the final decades of the 19th century, the development of a new lighter, brighter, out-of-doors painting style was played out in the artistic centres of Britain and Europe, and crucially influenced contemporary practice in Australia. Artists who began their careers in Melbourne were influenced by Impressionism, Plein Air, Naturalism and Aestheticism, and paid close attention to representing modern life. Leading up to Federation in 1901, these artists also created distinctly Australian responses to the landscape.

Highlights include some of the finest masterpieces of Australian Impressionism from Tom Roberts, Charles Douglas Richardson and Arthur Streeton.
