Hans Heysen

Born in Germany in 1877, Hans Heysen emigrated to Adelaide, South Australia with his family at the age of seven and became a popular national figure during his seventy year career. This timely exhibition will be the first comprehensive survey of Sir Hans Heysen’s work, since the Gallery’s own centenary retrospective of 1977.

It will mark eighty years since the public was first introduced to Heysen’s pivotal Flinders Ranges landscapes in 1928, and also commemorates the 40th anniversary of the artist’s death.
