Bringing together key works from collections around Australia and overseas, an important survey exhibition of Arthur Streeton’s war art. Streeton’s contribution to the Australian war effort was significant.

This survey of Arthur Streeton’s war art brings together key works from public and private collections around Australia and overseas.

Streeton made significant contributions to the Australian war effort, serving with the Royal Army Medical Corps at the Third London General Hospital in Wandsworth from 1915 to 1917 before leaving for the Western Front as an official war artist in May 1918. Arthur Streeton: The Art of War explores Streeton’s experience of the hard realities of warfare through paintings and sketches representing battlefield imagery, ranging from stranded war machinery and operations headquarters to dressing stations and field hospitals.This exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue by Curator Anne Gray, available online or in the NGA Shop.
