Del Kathryn Barton

An exhibition of paintings by Del Kathryn Barton inspired by Oscar Wilde’s classic story 'The Nightingale and the Rose', originally created for an illustrated book commissioned by Art & Australia. The theme of ecstatic metamorphosis through song attracted Barton to this story, where the life of a small bird is offered up for the ideal of love.

Art Exhibition previously on at Heide Museum of Modern Art in Melbourne precinct, Victoria, Australia.
From Saturday 10 November 2012 to Sunday 09 December 2012

For Barton, “the Nightingale is the true artist as she gives completely of her deepest essence”.
