Comprising key paintings from the mid-1930s to mid-1940s, a selection of works on paper, and a major representation of sculpture, the exhibition is supported by substantial archival material.

This project will highlight Vassilieff’s role in redirecting modern Australia art toward the expressive figurative tradition of Russian folk art and the artistic accomplishments of designers for the Ballets Russes. It will also provide ground-breaking evidence of Vassilieff’s contribution to Sidney Nolan’s celebrated Ned Kelly series.
