AustraliaIn September 2013, the Royal Academy of Arts will present a 'long overdue' survey of Australian art, the first major exhibition on the country in the UK in over 50 years. Indeed, "The last time the RA looked meaningfully at Australian art was 1923", notes The Guardian. Australia, put together in partnership with the National Gallery of Australia, will reveal the development of Australian art through over 180 paintings, prints and drawings, watercolours, photographs and multimedia works. These will include works by Aboriginal artists, 19th century European immigrants as well as the Australian Impressionists and early Modernists. The presence and influence of Australia's land and landscape will be an underlying theme throughout the exhibition.
