The exhibition features the work of J. W. Power, one of Australia’s most successful and accomplished expatriate painters of the interwar years. Power studied art in Paris with Fernand Léger at his Académie Moderne and was part of the international group of artists known as Abstraction–Création. This exhibition brings together, for the first time, Power’s paintings from the University of Sydney and his sketchbooks held by the National Library.
