Many of the works that comprise this magnificent exhibition were acquired or purchased by Edmund Capon during his 33 years as Director of the Art Gallery of New South Wales and certainly all of them have been recipients of his stewardship during that time. The knowledge and unique insights he’ll bring to this exhibition at Hazelhurst will be engaging.
