Lake Eyre & John Olsen.
Posted on March 14, 2013
I have long been an admirer of John Olsen’s work. He is regarded as Australian’s premier living artist in this present day. We are lucky at No. 9 to own a ‘Five Bells’ lithograph which we love. In the 1970’s John Olsen became aware of paintings by Sidney Nolan on the Lake Eyre area in South Australia. He developed a strong connection to the area and will fly over in order to gain the inspiration for his work. Below are some of the paintings representing Lake Eyre.
For further information on the work of John Olsen, contact the Tim Olsen Gallery in Paddington.
