More than any other artist of his generation, John Brack (1920–99) was a painter of modern Australian life. Unlike his contemporaries, Brack painted neither myth nor history and when he focused on the landscape, it was the sprawl of suburbia that caught his attention rather than the
ubiquitous Australian bush.

This is a National Gallery of Victoria Touring Exhibition. John Brack will be on display at the Art Gallery of South Australia from 2 October 2009 – 31 January 2010.
