White Whiteley: The portrait of Patrick White by Brett Whiteley

To celebrate the one hundredth anniversary of Patrick White's birth, the Gallery will display eleven works by Brett Whiteley, centred around his scintillating 'Patrick White at Centennial Park 1979-1980'. This focus display brings the glowing finished representation together for the first time with sketches Whiteley made as the portrait took shape in his imagination.

Art Exhibition previously on at National Portrait Gallery in Australian Capital Territory, Australia.
From Thursday 10 May 2012 to Sunday 22 July 2012
