A NEW EX­HI­BI­TION at the Art Gallery of New South Wales ex­plores the work of John Rus­sell, Aus­tralia’s French Im­pres­sion­ist. It is the first ma­jor survey of Rus­sell’s work in 40 years and brings to­gether 120 paint­ings, draw­ings and wa­ter­colours, drawn from the Art Gallery of NSW collection and from pri­vate and pub­lic col­lec­tions around the world in­clud­ing the Van Gogh Mu­seum in Am­s­ter­dam, the Musée d’or­say in Paris and the Philadel­phia Mu­seum of Art. Rus­sell’s unique en­gage­ment with French art in the 1880s and 1890s led to his paint­ing in a pure French im­pres­sion­ist style and form­ing close friend­ships with the lead­ing artists in Paris, in­clud­ing Vin­cent van Gogh and Au­guste Rodin.
