THE EXHIBITION WILL BE ON DISPLAY 'IN ITS ENTIRETY' UNTIL JULY 21

"The National Gallery welcomes the public to engage in dialog about our collection and exhibitions. Since 1973, when the National Gallery acquired Jackson Pollocks' Blue Poles, there has been a dynamic debate about the artistic merits of works in the national collection and/or exhibited in the Gallery. We present art to the Australian public to inspire people to discover, experience and learn about art.

Vincent Namatjira: Australia in Colour will be on display in its entirety until its closing date of 21 July 2024."

The painter Vincent Namatjira made the following statement;

"I paint the world as I see it. People don't necessarily like my paintings, but I hope they take the time to think: 'Why did this Aboriginal man paint these powerful people? What is he trying to say?'
I paint people who are rich or powerful or important, people who have a direct or indirect influence on this country and on me personally, for better or for worse.
