Exposing J.W. Power
22 July 2014

A new exhibition at the National Library of Australia will be open to the public this Friday which brings to the fore the work of twentieth-century Australian artist, J.W. Power (1881—1943) - Abstraction—Création: J.W. Power in Europe 1921—1938

Power left Australian shores early in his life, never to return, but left a magnificent legacy to Australian art. Sally Pryor of the Canberra Times met with curators Dr Ann Stephen, Dr Andrew Donaldson and the Library's Matt Jones to gain greater insight into Australia's most successful expatriate artist of the interwar years. Read her full story
