Regular price $44.95On Sale $15.00

Watercolour has long been an important medium in Queensland. Transparent is the first comprehensive survey of the Gallery’s watercolour collection, bringing to light many never seen before works from our substantial holdings from the mid nineteenth century to the 1980s. Watercolours by artists Conrad Martens and Harriet Jane Neville-Rolfe are included, together with works by Vida Lahey, JJ Hilder, and Kenneth Macqueen, celebrating the spirit of the modern era.

Queensland Indigenous painter Joe Rootsey and Brisbane expressionists WG Grant and Joy Roggenkamp also feature, as does a selection of paintings by artists who served in World War Two — Douglas Annand, Douglas Green, James Wieneke. Beautifully illustrated, Transparent includes a curatorial overview of the artworks, a conservator’s insight into fine art papers, and biographical notes on the artists.
