Australia’s most treasured art comes to London for biggest show yet seen in UK.

In September 2013, the Royal Academy of London will present the first survey of Australian art in the UK in over 50 years. The exhibition will reveal the development of Australian art through over 180 paintings, prints and drawings, watercolours, photographs and multimedia works, incorporating settlers’ images of the land from the beginning of the nineteenth century to today, together with art by Aboriginal Australians. The exhibition will consider the tensions both real and imagined between the landscape as a source of production, enjoyment, relaxation and inspiration, and conversely as a place loaded with mystery and danger.
