New Romantics

Simon Gregg (Curator of the Gippsland Art Gallery, Sale) has recently published the book 'New Romantics: Darkness and Light in Australian Art' that features the work of our gallery artists Jane Burton & Philip Wolfhagen, in addition to 34 other contemporary Australian artists.

Set against the dazzling backdrop of the Australian sublime, 'New Romantics' charts the dynasties of Romantic art. From its nascent beginnings in European philosophy to a cause championed by Australian colonialists, this compelling survey seeks to understand how it has landed in the hands of a new generation of Australian artists.
