Hans and Nora Heysen: Two Generations of Australian Art
⬤ Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia 8 Mar - 28 Jul 2019
I was quite prepared to come to Hans and Nora Heysen: Two Generations of Australian Art like a Countess blogger. Yet again the pairing of Nora Heysen with her father Hans, as though her story could only be told through him. Yet again the “Australianising” of Australian art history when this is also a German story and, when Nora goes overseas to study at the Central School in London, an English story.
