The exhibition brings together portraits of the pioneers of psychology in Australia from World War I to the 1950s and explores the work of artists whose experiments with portraiture are strongly informed by their interest in psychology, the subconscious mind and intense mental states.

Artists include Judy Cassab, Anne Ferran, Dale Frank, Joy Hester, Sidney Nolan, Mike Parr, Albert Tucker and Danila Vassilieff.

Sponsor: This exhibition is supported by the National Collecting Institutions Touring and Outreach Program, an Australian Government program aiming to improve access to the national collections for all Australians.
