She-Oak and Sunlight: Australian Impressionism features some of the most widely recognisable and celebrated works by Tom Roberts, Frederick McCubbin, Jane Sutherland, Arthur Streeton, Charles Conder, Clara Southern, John Russell and E. Phillips Fox, and brings to light lesser-known paintings by Iso Rae, May Vale, Jane Price and Ina Gregory. The exhibition presents these works in new and surprising contexts, exploring the impact of personal relationships, international influences and the importance of place on the trajectory of the movement.

Guest curator Dr Anne Gray AM along with NGV curators Dr Angela Hesson and Sophie Gerhard introduce the highlights of the exhibition in a filmed walk through, screened exclusively for NGV Members. Before attending the exhibition, Members can watch the curators as they discuss the defining moments in Australian Impressionism, encouraging us to look at the movement in new ways.

There will be three screenings at 12.00pm, 1.15pm & 2.30pm. As capacity is limited, please select your preferred session below and register your attendance to secure your place.

Tickets for the exhibition can be purchased seperately here.
