Sotheby’s Australia will host the most significant exhibition of works by John Brack ever held outside a public institution.  Curated by Geoffrey Smith, Chairman of Sotheby’s Australia, John Brack  |  Melbourne  |  1950s reunites major compositions tightly held in private collections, several which have not been seen in public for many decades.  John Brack is a central figure in Australian Modernist painting and the exhibition celebrates John Brack’s unique visual vocabulary that deftly critiqued Australian society in the dramatic aftermath of the Second World War that witnessed new prosperity and change in the social dynamic of metropolitan Melbourne. 

This exhibition can only be viewed in person.  No works of art are for sale and proceeds from the exhibition and associated events will be directed to support Castlemaine Art Museum.
