In celebration of Australia’s Federation and the significant era leading up to the founding of our federal capital in 1913, the National Gallery of Australia is preparing Capital and Country: The Federation years 1900–1913, a major national touring exhibition of paintings from the national collection.
The paintings highlight key ideas, influences and shifts in painting, in the significant narratives of both Federation painting in Australia and the work of expatriate Australian artists. Artists include Tom Roberts, Hans Heysen, Frederick McCubbin as well as those who were painting abroad such as George W. Lambert, Hugh Ramsay, Rupert Bunny, E. Phillips Fox, Ethel Carrick, Hilda Rix Nicholas and Max Meldrum.
The exhibition is being specifically developed to tour every State and Territory through 2013 to 2015, to be launched in the year of Canberra’s centenary, as a gift to the nation.
