Lloyd Rees: Life and Light


Brisbane-born painter and draftsman Lloyd Rees (1895 – 1988) is one of Australia’s most recognised and awarded landscape painters.  The exhibition examines his focus on the effects of light on varied subject matters, including architecture, interiors, landscapes, figures and self-portraits.  Honouring the important connection Lloyd Rees had with Queensland, especially in his early development as a draftsman and artist, the exhibition explores the range of his artistic achievements throughout his long career.
