Throughout his long and prolific career, Bunny’s work was receptive to the major progressive artistic trends in French art and to a lesser extent in British art of the period. He engaged with many late 19th century tendencies; Symbolism, Japonaiserie, late pre-Raphaelitism, Orientalism, Impressionism, Fauvism and the influence of Cézanne to create works which range from large mythological works, religious works, portraits, landscapes, decorative allegories and intimate ‘Belle Epoque’ scenes.

The first major exhibition of Bunny’s work since 1991, Rupert Bunny will be shown at the National Gallery of Victoria and the AGNSW.
