Textiles of Michael O'Connell

NGV Collection Focus

This NGV Collection focus showcases the vibrant print designs of British-born textile artist Michael O'Connell who lived and worked in Melbourne from 1921-1937. From early figurative works, to a fascination with classical motifs, Australiana and later abstraction, O'Connell's fabrics chart the emergent aesthetic of the modernist age.

Art Exhibition previously on at NGV International in Victoria, Australia.
From Saturday 14 September 2013 to Tuesday 31 December 2013
