Hester, Nolan and Tucker were closely involved with John and Sunday Reed at their property Heide at Bulleen, and with the progressive literary and artistic movement known as the Angry Penguins. Their contemporaries Arthur Boyd and John Perceval were based in Murrumbeena, where they established a pottery Open Country upon returning from military service. Each artist in their own way challenged the accepted mores of Melbourne’s art scene. This exhibition is a rare opportunity to see these works on paper displayed in depth.
