Sotheby's Australia is honoured to present one of the most significant exhibitions by Albert Tucker ever held outside a public institution. Curated by Geoffrey Smith, Chairman of Sotheby's Australia, Albert Tucker: Images of Modern Evil reunites major compositions from a crucial and defining series within the history and development of Australian art.

Drawn from the personal collection of Albert and Barbara Tucker, the exhibition contains many works that have never previously been available for public sale. Offered on behalf of the Albert and Barbara Tucker Foundation, proceeds from the sale of each work will benefit important social causes including the initiation of social change which goes towards increasing the equal treatment and social acceptance of all persons in the community.

It seems particularly appropriate that Albert Tucker’s forceful and energetic compositions that removed the veil of respectability and revealed the rupture, disunity, violence, vulnerability, menace, ambiguity, and urgency confronting our society, continue to play a vital role in our present and future welfare.
